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.
