Add Thrift Library links to Google Scholar

Linking your AU account to Google Scholar will allow you to avoid pay walls and gain immediate access to resources owned by Thrift Library that appear in your search results. To configure your Google Scholar, make sure you are logged in to your AU Google account (using your AU login credentials) and click on the hamburger menu item (the three horizontal parallel lines) in the top left corner of the Google Scholar screen. Then click on "Settings" (next to the gear-like icon) and from that screen click on "Library Links". Search for Anderson University (SC) in the search box and then select it as your library.

When you conduct a search in Google Scholar, click on the link titled "Find It @ Thrift Library" to prompt the item to open within Thrift Library's databases.

See the Google Scholar "Search Help" pages to learn how to get the most out of your Thrift Library connection.
