UC-eLinks and Google Scholar: The sum is greater than the parts

Did you know you can set up Google Scholar to …

… export citations directly to EndNote or RefWorks?

… link to UC-eLinks, so you can find the article, book, etc. online or in the Melvyl catalog?

Both are true and take only a couple of minutes to set up!

  1. In Google Scholar, click Scholar Preferences
  2. Scroll down to Library Links
  3. Type "berkeley" in the box
  4. Check all the boxes that refer to UC Berkeley
  5. Scroll down a bit more to Bibliography Manager
  6. Click the radio button for Show links to import citations into
  7. Select EndNote or RefWorks
  8. Click Save Preferences

Now after you perform a search, there will be an Import into EndNote [or RefWorks] link below each search result and a UC-eLinks link and icon below or to the right of each search result.
