Database Access Tools

Want to use Google Scholar to find articles? Link UI Library to your account to make it easy to check our subscriptions for full text access.

  • Sign in to Google Scholar with your Gmail / Google account (link in upper right corner).
  • Go to your Settings (accessible from the menu button in the upper left corner).
  • Click on "Library links".
  • Type "Idaho" in the search box, select both "Univ of Idaho - Get it" and "Open WorldCat - Library Search" from the list, and click on "Save".
  • Now your Google Scholar search results will show a link "Univ of Idaho - Get it" to access full text items in our subscriptions. Note: Scholar can only cross-check some of our holdings so may not comprehensively list access options.

The log-in bookmarklet allows you to log in through the library from wherever you are on the internet without leaving that page. So, say you find an article via Google that asks for you to sign in to access it, just click on the bookmarklet link in your bookmarks bar and this tool will automatically log you in and grant you access, if the library subscribes to the journal or database in which it's held.
