Getting full text through Google Scholar

If you locate an article through Google Scholar you may be able to obtain the full text through the WMU Libraries journal subscriptions. If you are on campus you will be automatically linked from the results listing to full text articles available through  the libraries. If you are off campus, you can change Google Scholar settings to be able to link to full text materials which WMU Libraries have licensed. In Google Scholar select "Settings," then "Library Links." Search "Western Michigan University" and select all the options listed.
