Google Scholar does not automatically access the full article of many/most entries. You can access many of these articles via the Stanislaus State Library by using our links from Google Scholar.
When searching Google Scholar on campus (or via the university VPN), links to University Library articles will appear next to many Google Scholar entries. If the main Google Scholar link does not lead to the full test of the article, look for the following options / links to the right of the entry:
The FULL VIEW, Find It and proquest.com links should lead to full articles available immediately from the library.
You can configure an off-campus browser so Google Scholar will link to Stanislaus State Library sources for articles, giving you access to full articles from home/off-campus.
At a Google Scholar screen:
"Find It at CSU Stanislaus" and or [PDF] proquest.com links should now appear next to many Google Scholar entries, linking you to the full articles from the University Library.
If you search Google Scholar again from the same browser, these library links should always be available until you delete/remove cookies.
