Can I add my proxy prefix to the Google Scholar box?

I want the results from the Google Scholar box to show information from my library's holdings / databases / catalog so my users can get direct access right from the results. Is this possible?

Absolutely! Adding your proxy to the Google Scholar box makes it so much easier for your users to get directly to the information they need.

Here's how you add it - you must be an admin-level user in your system to do this.

  1. Go to Admin Stuff > System Settings > Link Options.
  2. In the Proxy Server & Link Target box, choose Add Proxy URL under the Proxy Google Scholar Boxes heading.

That's it! Now your users will see proxied results whenever they use the Google Scholar boxes on your guides. :)
