You can set your browser to have Google Scholar link to full text articles in Western databases from any computer you use.  You will see either a "Findit! @ WWU" link at the bottom of the citation or a "Full Text @ WWU" option next to the title.  If you are using Google Scholar from a campus computer it should automatically recognize you as a Western user.

To set Google Scholar up for off-campus access:

  • Click on "Library Links"

  • Search for Western Washington University in the box that comes up.
  • Tick the box next to Western Washington University Libraries - Findit!@Western Libraries.

Here is an example of what this looks like when Google Scholar gives you a link to full text access through Western:
