Library Resources and Services for Faculty: Research Support for Faculty

An overview of library resources pertinent to Norfolk State University faculty.

Google Scholar

Tools for Researching Online

While we recommend accessing our online resources via the Library's website there are a number of tools we'd recommend to help you locate material when you're working off-campus:

  1. Set up your Library Links in Google Scholar. If a copy is available through the Library Google Scholar will provide a "Find Full Text" link to allow you to access it.

How to Set Up Library Links in Google Scholar

You can set up the ‘Library Links’ function in Google Scholar so that it will recognize when the Lyman Beecher Brooks Library has subscribed access to an article and provides a “Find Full Text” article link.

Here's how to do it:

 1. Go to Google Scholar

2. Click on the Menu button  undefined

3. Click on the Settings gear  undefined

4. Select Library Links, and then select "Norfolk State University Library" and "Open WorldCat Library Search" under the search bar

5.  Note that the University’s Library is for students, staff, and faculty affiliated with NSU.

6. Click "Save"

7. Now, when you search Google Scholar, you will see a "Full-Text @ Your Library" link next to any subscription resources that we have access to through LBB


You will need to configure the Google Scholar settings in each browser you use to search Google Scholar.
