Q. How do I access UCC eResources via Google Scholar?
- On-Campus Access
You can search Google Scholar and follow any relevant results/links as normal. If UCC has a subscription to the article of interest, in general, you should be able to access it without having to log in.
- Off-Campus Access
You need to make Google Scholar aware of your UCC affiliation by availing of the Google Scholar "Library Links" feature, which can be found at the following link: https://scholar.google.com/scholar_settings?hl=en&as_sdt=0,5#2
Ensure that "University College Cork - OneSearch @ UCC Library" is ticked.
If you do not see an entry for UCC, you can add it by entering "university college cork" into the search box provided.
Once this setting is enabled, you will see the “OneSearch @ UCC Library” link appear next to Google Scholar search results for which UCC has a subscription.
Following this link will allow you to authenticate and access the desired article.
Note: Google Scholar requires that you enable cookies in your browser to retain this setting between sessions.
