Access to full text articles via Google Scholar

I searched for information on Google Scholar, but when I clicked on the article it wants me to pay, what do I do now?

Try accessing Google Scholar via the library homepage, click on FIND, E-Databases and choose G for Google Scholar and conduct your search. Visiting Google Scholar this way, will automatically detect your Library Links preferences.

What is a Library Links preference on Google Scholar and how can I do it from home?

A Library Links preference allows you set your preferred Library Choice in Google Scholar. It will then automatically detect when an article is freely available via any of the electronic platforms that Stellenbosch University Library subscribes to. Use the guide below to change your Google Scholar settings on your own computer.
