Day1: Tech tip

The first on the challenge was to share a Tech tip.  Mine would be incorporating a library with a federated search into your google scholar through library links.

This was a tip shared by the NLB while I was on the study tour last year.

Here is a step by step guide:

1. Go to google scholar

2. On settings choose "library links" 

3. In "library links" you add the library (up to five) where you have access to a journal database. In this case you can see I've added Charles Sturt University where I'm a student. 

4. When you do a search, on the RHS you will see links to your library where you can directly (after putting in your password and ID) go to the article via your libraries database.
