Many VU library databases can be searched through Google Scholar.

Fulltext journal articles and research papers can be retrieved by clicking on the "Find Fulltext @ VU Library" link when it appears to the right of your search results. This will happen automatically while on campus but may need to be set up as "Library Links" under Scholar Settings to work from off-site.

  • Go to "Settings" in Google Scholar (click on the three parallel lines symbol near the top left-hand corner of the screen )
  • Click on "Library links"
  • In the search window type in "Victoria University", a number of alternatives will appear - click on the tick box next to "Victoria University Library - Find Fulltext@VU library"
  • Click on the blue "Save" button
    • you may also need to follow the instructions below the "Save" button - To retain setting, you must turn on cookies
