The New Look of Google Scholar

Posted in In and Around the Library

Google continues to work on new ways to search and interact the web. Recently, Google Scholar changed its appearance. It still offers all of the great features including bibliography manager and library links.

Adding Library Links to your Google Account – (Use this when you are off campus and researching. It will include WPI Library subscribed information and give you greater access to the web! See our LibGuide for more information.)

Go to the “gear” that allows you to edit your user preferences:

 

 

 

 

 

Then, select “Library Links” on the left hand side:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From Library Links you will be able to search for “Worcester Polytechnic Institute”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now you will see WPI Library subscribed content while you search!

 

Adding your Bibliography Manager:

 

Go to the “gear” that allows you to edit your user preferences:

 

 

 

 

 

Then, in the section marked “Bibliography manager” Select “Add links to import citations into:” and select whichever bibliography manager you use. (I use RefWorks, so that is the one I would choose)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also note Limiters have been moved to the left hand side of the screen, pictured below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can contact a Research and Instruction Librarian for more information through lib-answers@wpi.edu, 508-831-6700, or stopping by the Information Desk.
