Google Scholar, Databases and Research: Google Scholar Settings

Scholar Preferences

Setting the preferences in Google Scholar allows you to choose libraries for library access links, how you want import citation links (to EndNote, for example), and more.

Search Tip

 Take a look at the Advanced Search options with any database - you may be able to make your search more effective by searching within a more narrow search field (such as author or journal title)


You can use Google Scholar settings to find results that are available through Northeastern. Use this custom link to automatically set your preferences.
