Google Scholar Search

What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar is an online search tool that you can use to find articles, books, theses, court decisions, etc.  When available, Google Scholar will link to the full-text version of the resource.

Why would I link Google Scholar to the AIT Library?

Linking Google Scholar to the AIT Library lets Google show you which full-text articles we have access to through the library's subscriptions.

Once you link them, Google Scholar will automatically check to see if the AIT Library has access to full-text articles. If we do, you'll be able to link to articles directly from Google Scholar.

Who will find this useful?

When you're on campus, Google Scholar will automatically recognize that you have access to the Library's subscriptions.  You won't need to link anything -- you can just start searching!

If you search for articles off-campus, follow the instructions in the box to the right to link Google Scholar to the AIT Library.

Type "Athlone Institute of Technology" into the search box, click the search icon, select Athlone Institute of Technology from the results list, save your selection.
