Using Google Scholar to access EUI Library Resources

The Library has enabled 'EUI links' in Google Scholar to display full-text content for EUI members.

To use the service, EUI users must set preferences in their browser in order to enable full-text access to EUI Library-subscribed resources.

  1. Google Scholar SettingsGo to http://scholar.google.com/

  2. Click on the Google Scholar Settings icon link in the top menu; then click on 'Library Links'

  3. ON-CAMPUS Users should automatically see an entry for 'European University Institute - EUI Links.' If the checkbox next to the entry is blank, click the box

  4. OFF-CAMPUS Users should search for 'European University Institute' in the Library Links search box. Click the box for 'European University Institute - EUI Links'

  5. Click Save, then enter the search keywords required.

Once Google Scholar has been configured, EUI users will see 'EUI Links' next to entries for full-text articles that EUI members have access to. For example:


Tips on Using Google Scholar 

  • If Google Scholar does not provide a complete citation (eg. if the date of publication is missing) the EUI Links service may be prevented from displaying EUI full-text options

  • If an article in the Google Scholar results' list does not include an EUI Links' button, users should search the EUI Library Catalogue to see if a print version of the content is available

  • Google Scholar does not contain all scholarly literature. Some publishers and vendors do not allow Google Scholar to index their databases.


Users who configured 'EUI Links' in Google Scholar before January 2017, should update settings

  • Unselect the 'European University Institute - EUI Links (SFX) option'
  • Make sure that the 'European University Institute - EUI Links' option is selected.
