Does UW have the article I need?

Option 1: If you find an article on the web, use the Proxy Bookmarklet to see if UW has access.  The bookmarklet lets you log into the proxy without having to browse from the Libraries website.

Option 2: Go to the Ejournals page.  Click on the Articles tab to search for your article.

Option 3: If 1 & 2 don't work, email your subject librarian with citation information or web link. 

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. These resources can be very useful, but keep in mind not all of them are peer-reviewed.

How to access UW Restricted materials in Google Scholar:

  1. From the Google Scholar homepage, open the menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
  2. Open the Settings menu and click the "Library links" option on the left side of the screen.
  3. Using the search box, search on "University of Washington" to reveal the access link labeled "University of Washington - Full Text @ UW." Check the box next to this option, then click "save."

Tip: If you don't see the "University of Washington - Full Text @ UW" link on the first page of results, click the ">" icon to see more results. ‚Äč
