Google Scholar – New Look, Same Great Options

scholarGoogle Scholar recently made some interface updates and so may look a bit different, but still offers Himmelfarb Library users some great options to customize the search interface.    Many of the customization options are available from the menu in the very upper left portion of the screen (three horizontal lines); the Settings option available there will allow you to:

  • Search Results: in the Bibliography Manager section, change the ‘Show links to import citations into’ to RefWorks.
  • Library Links: if you’re off-campus, search for George Washington and add the full-text links for Himmelfarb Library to improve your access to full-text articles.

Google Scholar also revamped the Cite and Save options.  These options appear under each citation, moved left, and are now represented by icons rather than text.  The Cite option is available under the quote marks icon, and the Save option is available via the star icon.
