Do you ever wish you could use a Google Scholar citation to go straight to the full text of an article?  Well, if the library subscribes to it, you can.  On Google Scholar’s main page, select Scholar Preferences to the right of the search box.  Under Library Links, type “College of William and Mary” and select Find Library.  Then select the boxes next to the sources and Save Preferences at the top of the page.

Google Scholar

In your results lists, you'll see the link to Find It @ W&M which will take you to a page that provides links to the journal or database.  If you aren’t on a campus computer you will need to input your W&M username and password to access the articles, but it’s a lot easier than having to look up the same citation multiple times!

If the Law Library doesn’t subscribe to a database that provides the full text of the article, you can always jump over to our ILL page and use the citation to request it.
