Find it!

A guide to Manchester Metropolitan University Library's Find it! service

Find it! and Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine that allows you to find scholarly literature such as theses, articles, abstracts and books.

Find it! works with Google Scholar as well as our subscribed databases. On campus, Find it! links are added automatically to your Google Scholar search results. Links to Find it! appear as text rather than buttons, ie Find it! at MMU Library.

For off-campus use, you must complete the following steps to see the Find it! links:

  • Go to Google Scholar at http://www.scholar.google.com;
  • Click on Settings and in the left hand menu choose Library Links;
  • Enter Manchester Metropolitan University in the search box and click the search button;
  • You should see a check box appear with Manchester Metropolitan University (Find It at MMU Library) next to it. Make sure this box has a tick in it;
  • Click Save Preferences.

NB The presence of a Find It! link by a search result is not a guarantee that Manchester Metropolitan University‚Äč has access to the full text.
