Key Online Resources

What about searching Google Scholar and being asked to pay to view an article?

If you are prompted to pay to access an article, you may have found your way to a commercial publisher's site.  It is wise to check if the library provides free access to that article via one of our journal or database subscriptions.  You are able to do this in Google Scholar by setting up Full Text@Griffith links in Google Scholar.   

The Full Text@Griffith links appear next to a result when that item is available in full text via our Griffith library subscriptions. If you are using the Griffith network to connect to Google Scholar, these links appear automatically.  Alternatively, if you are accessing Google Scholar directly on the web, you can set up the Full Text@Griffith links.
