Have you set your Preferences on Google Scholar? Doing this takes a
moment, and allows Google to better help link you through to the
fulltext of articles.
Google Scholar often will take you directly to the fulltext by clicking on an article title. Sometimes, however, the article is available from multiple sources - Fondren may have the article available at a source other than the one listed in Google Scholar.
- when you're in a fullscreen search of GoogleScholar, look to the right of the search box for "Scholar Preferences" and click there
- look for the section on "Library Links" and use the search box to find the entries for Rice University, Fondren Library (there are several - chose all of them for the best results)
- Save your preferences and return to searching
now will be able to Click on either "Check Fondren Holdings" or
"Fulltext @ Fondren" to see if the article is available from another
Fondren database than the one Google Scholar has chosen to point to.
