Off-Campus Google Scholar Access

Please be advised that Google Scholar is not working for off-campus users when accessed via the the Angus L. MacDonald Library website.  Off-campus users will not see the “Check for full text @ X” link, however, those affected can still use Google Scholar by logging into your personal google account and setting St. Francis Xavier University as your library. For instructions on how to set StFX as your library in Google Scholar, please visit our subject guide: https://stfx.libguides.com/library-tips-tricks/google-scholar.  For further assistance, contact our Reference Desk between 1pm and 4pm, Monday to Friday.

On-campus users should not have any issues using Google Scholar normally.

Google has been made aware of this issue and we are working to correct the problem as soon as possible.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
