EBSCO Titles on Google Scholar

Many members of the South Texas College of Law should be familiar with the databases available via Stanley in the Electronic Resources channel on the Library tab. This conveniently allows you to access databases away from the South Texas campus.

The Fred Parks Law Library has recently joined a program with Google Scholar to allow you to access the same journals available in EBSCO databases, such as MEDLINE and Academic Search Complete, in Google Scholar search results. Now if you are on the South Texas campus and searching for titles in Google Scholar a link will automatically appear next to the title of a result linking to the full text.

There is nothing extra you as a researcher need to do. Simply type your query in Google Scholar, hit search and if the result is available in an EBSCO database there will be a link next to the result taking you directly to the article.
