Connecting Google Scholar results with NMSU's journal subscriptions

Many researchers are finding it handy to use Google Scholar to find references to journal citations. The steps outlined below describe how researchers at NMSU can customize Google Scholar to facilitate exporting the citations to EndNoteWeb.

First, about Google Scholar:

  • Allows one to search the FULL TEXT of journal articles from thousands of publishers. (The list of publishers that have allowed Google to search behind their firewalls has not been revealed).
  • You can configure the settings to link to articles for which NMSU Library holds a subscription
  • Many of the records are just links to citations not to the actual article; you will not be able to download these citations
  • Read more about Google Scholar: Comparison of Google Scholar, Web of Science, Scopus  

Setting the preferences is necessary when using a computer with an off-campus IP address. This will let you use the New Mexico State University Library Full-Text @ NMSU links for citations as well as export the citations to EndNote Basic.

  • Go to Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.com
  • Click on Settings:

  • For compatibility with EndNote Basic:
    • Under Bibliography Manager, select Show links to Import citations into EndNote.

  • In the Library Links, search for New Mexico State University. Then choose
    • ​​New Mexico State University-Full-Text@NMSU
    • Open WorldCat-Library Search
