Please Note: Froedtert Health has implemented a new security protocol which has resulted in the degradation of on-campus access to MCW Libraries' electronic resources. Users on the Froedtert network must sign in via OpenAthens when attempting to access electronic library resources (including UpToDate, VisualDx, etc.). MCW Libraries is aware of this change and is working to provide a permanent access solution. If you have MCW credentials, please sign in via MCW employees and students when prompted. If you are a Froedtert employee, click here to register for an OpenAthens account or view more information.

Instructions for setting up MCW Libraries links in Google Scholar

Accessing Subscription Content with the Get It Links

After setting up library links, you will see "Get It From MCW Libraries" links next to most articles in Google Scholar.  Links will either appear to the right of a citation, or underneath the citation after clicking the >> symbol.

These links will take you to the full text of an article if MCW Libraries has a subscription, or it will take you to a webpage where you can request a copy of the item through our interlibrary loan/request materials service

If you are off-campus, you may be prompted to log into OpenAthens before you are connected to the subscription article.
