Using Google Scholar as a starting point for library and academic research is a good library research strategy. Google Scholar provides titles to many academic articles and books, but, often those titles are only accessible through a paywall. In other words, if you want to see the article from Google Scholar, you may have to pay to view the entire article.   

Fortunately, as a current student at Snow College you have free access to millions of articles and books. You can even access some of those articles by clicking on a link in Google Scholar!  

Creating a link to access articles in our library databases take less than three minutes!  Follow the simple steps below to create the link:

  1. Navigate in a web browser to
  2. Next, select “settings” from the menu icon at the top left.
  3. Click on library links in the left-hand menu
  4. Type Snow College in the search box, hit enter, then check all the Snow College boxes
  5. Click Save
  6. When you are in a Google Scholar results page, clicking “Snow College Library” takes you to content provided by the Snow College library.
  7. If you are using Google Scholar off-campus, you will be prompted to log-in using your Badger ID and password before you can access the article.

Note that if you are not logged into your Google account or you don’t have a Google account, you will need to repeat this process each time you use Google Scholar.
