The answer to this depends upon where you are when searching Google Scholar. If you are using a computer connected to the campus network, Google Scholar automatically detects that and provides a text link to ViewIt@UILink. Follow that link to see if we have access to the article.
If you are searching Google Scholar from off campus, you have two options for getting Google Scholar to recognize that you are affiliated with UI. If you use our link from Databases A-Z, you will be prompted to log in with your Hawk ID and then ViewIt@UILink will appear in Google Scholar results.
However, if you use this method and see the following error after searching Google Scholar, you will need to use the method described in the next paragraph:
ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key
If you are working off campus and prefer to go directly to Google Scholar, you can show it that you are UI-affiliated if you have a Google account. When logged in to your Google account and on the Google Scholar search page, click on the three bars in the upper left, then Settings, then Library links. Use the search box to locate University of Iowa, then the check box to turn on ViewIt@UILink in results.
