"Google works with libraries to determine which journals and papers they've subscribed to electronically, and then links to articles from those sources when they're available. Once you tell [Google Scholar] what library you're a member of, [Google Scholar] will keep an eye out for that library's subscription materials and provide special links to them in your search results."

Links to Full Text@Kean University should automatically appear when you search Google Scholar from a computer on the Kean University campus. 

If you do not see Full Text@Kean University links while searching Google Scholar from a laptop computer on-campus OR from an off-campus computer, then please follow the steps listed below:

  • Go to Google Scholar at https://scholar.google.com.

  • Click the menu link in the top left corner.

  • Click Settings.

  • Click Library links.

  • Type the name of your library in the search box. For instance, type: Kean University

  • Make sure the check box is selected next to Kean University - Full-Text@Kean University and Open WorldCat - Library Search.

  • Click Save.

  • Start searching.

  • Check whether or not full text is available for an article by clicking Full-Text@Kean University (when the link appears). You may need to log in with your Kean Google user name and password (when prompted) to access the full-text article.
