Google Scholar

If there is a record of a journal article on the open internet, you can use Google Scholar to find it. Some library licensed articles can be accessed directly in Google Scholar, but you must first configure your Google Scholar settings to work with our library subscriptions.

How to Configure Google Scholar:
  1. Open your Google Scholar settings, and choose Library Links from the menu bar.
  2. Search for University of California Davis.
  3. Check the box that says: University of California, Davis -- Get it at UC.
  4. Select Save.
