Google Scholar Preferences

Google Scholar via kwout

Why not integrate UM Libraries resources into your Google Scholar searching.

You can easily do this by configuring Google Scholar Preferences.

Go down to Library Links where you can set up library link preferences. You can configure to link most of academic libraries. Simply type in the keyword to list your selections. In this example, University of Manitoba (UMLinks), AMICUS (Library and Archives Canada), and WorldCat ("The Mother of All Academic and Research Libraries") are already selected. The advantage of linking to WorldCat is that you will have another quick way to locate UM Libraries holdings.

Finally, go down to the bottom of the preferences page and select an appropriate bibliography manager, if you wish. Select your choice from the pull-down menu: BibTeX, EndNote, RefMan, RefWorks, or WenXianWang.

You are done with your configuration when clicked "Save Preferences."
