Google Scholar and LibX

Google Scholar and LibX

Due Process, the Georgetown Law Blog, notes that HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library is now searchable in Google Scholar.

If you haven’t already done so, you may wish to download LibX from the Harvard Libraries. This plugin tool ties you into the Harvard system for all the databases that we buy and for which you have access. If you search Google Scholar and find articles in HeinOnline, JSTOR, Oxford University Press, Sage Press, PubMed, or other such paid databases, you will find that you can only see a citation and it will prompt you for access information. After installing LibX, just right click on your mouse and choose Reload Library via Harvard Access, and this will tie you back into Harvard and allow you to the full article in whichever database we’ve already purchased.

If you are not sure that Harvard has access to the database, this is a great way to find out!
