Google Scholar

Setting Preferences in Google Scholar

Google Scholar searches academic articles from a variety of sources and across many disciplines. Some articles are available to everyone but some are restricted and will ask for payment. However, current NAU affiliated faculty, staff, and students have access to many of these restricted items for free.

On Campus 

When using Google Scholar on campus, it may automatically recognize that you are affiliated with the NAU and display “Find@NAU” links for items where this is available.
