The Bailey Library has brought its information resources to where some of our wandering users might find themselves on the web, Google Scholar and Academic Live Search, both pilot projects undertaken by Google and Microsoft respectively.
When users happen to choose Google Scholar as a search engine for academic resources, the search result will include both books and electronic journal articles. Users can then query if the Bailey Library holds a particular book, or they can access electronic articles licensed by the Library after authentication. If Academic Live Search is their preference, users will also be able to access our electronic articles in a similar manner by using that search engine.
This seamless access to Bailey Library’s information resources via Google Scholar and Academic Live Search is made possible by the Library’s profiling with both companies along with Serials Solutions, a provider of OpenURL linking services.
