Google Scholar is a search engine that provides links to full-text articles to which the University Library subscribes and to resources made freely available by the publisher.
Full text journal articles can be retrieved by clicking on the "Find Fulltext@VU Library" link when it appears to the right of your search results. This will happen automatically while on-campus but may need to be set up as "Library Links" under Scholar Settings to work from off-site.
