Although we recommend that you use the Library’s tools to search the academic literature in your subject area, we recognise that many of you really like to use Google Scholar too.
Did you know that you can link the library’s subscriptions to your Google Scholar account, so that you see full text from Cranfield’s subscriptions in your results list? We are sure that this will help you out even further in these difficult days when the library is closed and we are all working from home, wherever that may be.

Click on the ‘hamburger menu’ at the top left of the screen and choose ‘settings’:

Why not check out your subject or course guide on your library website to find out which ones are the most appropriate for your subject area? These link to high quality library databases to help you find academic literature in your subject.
