Connecting Google Scholar to MRU Library

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is a search engine that searches academic literature and scholarly sources - including items which are free (Open Access) as well as closed access items, many of which are available from the MRU Library.

Why would I want to connect Google Scholar to MRU Library?

Connect your Google Scholar settings so that your search results will include full text MRU Library links for the items that are in our collection. (Don't forget that if you find a resource that is not available you can submit an InterlibraryLoan Request and we will find you a copy.)

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Google Scholar and click on the horizontal bars at the top left and then click Settings.


  2. Click Library Links and search for Mount Royal University.  Select "Mount Royal University Library - Full-Text@MRU Library". Click Save.


  3. A new will now appear in your search results for items - book chapters and articles - that can be retrieved full text via MRU. Note: this functions for electronic items only and will not indicate if MRU holds an item in print.
