The below steps show you how to access Google Scholar and to use it to easily chase known citations.


1. Access Google Scholar through EKU Libraries

There is a handy dandy link to Google Scholar located on EKU Libraries' homepage.

 

2. Login using your EKU username and password

CAS password login screen

This is the same username and password you use for many of your EKU accounts. Be sure to enter your username without @mymail.eku.edu.

So your username should look something like this as a student:

john_smith7

jane_doe2

3. Enter  the title and author information

Here we are using the article "Using the instructional design process in tutorial development" from author Terri Artemchik as an example.

4. Scan the Google results page to look for the article

In our example, Google Scholar found the article and shows only that article in the results list.

5. Avoid clicking on the title of the article

Try clicking on the GET MORE AT EKU LIBRARIES link instead to find and access the article. 

Tip! Watch out for articles without a Get More at EKU Libraries link

Highlighting the arrows to access the Get more at EKU Libraries link in Google Scholar

When you have an article without the Get More link on the right of the screen, try clicking on the two right direction arrows at the bottom of the article.  GET MORE can usually be found there as shown in the above example.
