Google Scholar links to Sydney Uni Library full text

Did you already know about direct links to Sydney Uni full text journal articles via Google Scholar preferences? If you don’t, it may save you a lot of time, especially when you’re wanting to track down a single article. Beats searching through journal years and issue numbers! Here is how it works:

 Login to igoogle (so all your preferences stay saved)
 Then go into google scholar (in the pull down menu under “more”)
 Go into scholar preferences (second blue link to the right of the search bar)
 From library links, select University of Sydney

Then whenever you find an article on Google Scholar, it gives you the option to link directly to the full text article. When you click on the blue University of Sydney link to the right of your result, it goes straight to your Unikey login page and after login and agreeing to the conditions, you have the full text.
