Link Google Scholar to Middlesex Library
Did you know you can use Google Scholar to link to our electronic journals? On campus, you will see articles with a Full-text@Middlesex link on the right. Click these links to access the full text journal the Library pays for.
Off campus you will need to set this up the first time. Click on the "hamburger menu" (three lines) symbol in the top left hand corner of the screen. Then click on the settings icon and select 'Library Links' from the menu on the left. Search for and select Middlesex University. Click Save. This will be remembered for future visits.
You may be asked to login to verify you are entitled to view the things you find. Your login is your usual Middlesex Username and Password, which you would use to login to a PC when on campus.
