Off Campus Access to eResources

This guide discusses accessing eresources from outside the campus ip ranges.

Linking to Library Resources from Google Scholar

You can access Purdue University Library materials from off-campus using Google Scholar through EZProzy.   EZProxy won't be initiated until you click through the "Full Text at Purdue" link and attempt to access a resource.

First you must set up your library links to display the "Full Text at Purdue" link when off-campus.  On campus users are recognized by their IP and no configuration is needed.

1. Go to Google Scholar -

2. Click on the settings option that is located on the top left hand side of the screen.

Then you will be taken to the article or journal just as if you were on-campus.  Sometimes you may be required to browse for a specific article in an archive or table of contents.  Look for a PDF link to the article.
