We are currently experiencing issues with Google Scholar not picking up UC library holdings.
At present, you will not see the "view full text at UC library" messages when using Google Scholar.
This is a problem between Google and our search provider. Both parties are working on the issue and have advised that the problem should be resolved by Wednesday/Thursday next week.
In the meantime, to search for articles we hold in full text please use Multisearch, accessible from the Library home page.
