Google Scholar is a freely-available search engine that focuses on scholarly literature. Results from searches link to a variety of items, Sometimes the full text is immediately available, but sometimes full-text is denied to non-subscribers. Through its library, Rush subscribes to thousands of journal publications. Follow these steps to link Rush's library to Google Scholar.

Link Google Scholar to Rush Library Holdings
Perform your search (or go back to search results and hit Refresh). You should see a double arrow at the end of the citation. Click it and look for a Get It @ Rush link. Click the Get It @ Rush link to see if Rush Library offers full-text access to the document. If access is not available through Rush, you will be given the option to request the item through interlibrary loan (ILLiad).
If Google does not include a Get It @ Rush icon for an article, you can find out if Rush offers full text access to the journal by searching for the journal title in our eJournals list (click eJournals & eBooks from the Quick Links column on our library website).
