Google Scholar is an excellent tool for searching across a set of scholarly journals and books. When you’re using Google Scholar off campus, you’ll need to set your Scholar Settings to recognize Duke University Libraries.
Once your preferences are set, you’ll see the Get it at Duke link next to your search results. The Get it at Duke link will connect you to the online or print version of the article/book in the library.
If you have any more questions about Google Scholar, Ask a Librarian!
