  • Library support for researchers
  • Our role
    Linking library content and collections to researchers strategies

  • Google Scholar linking
    If you are logged into the portal and using Google search or Google Scholar you will find that the underlying shared technology enables Google to recognise that you are from the University of Greenwich and link to full text content subscribed to or paid for by the library. This depends on compatibility with specific databases, e-resources and publishers
