When you're using Google Scholar, you can enable an option to see links to the full text of articles from the Library's licensed EBSCO databases.  You need to set this up once within your preferred internet browser first, however.  To do this:

1) Go to http://scholar.google.com

2) Click the Settings link to the upper right corner.

3) Then, click Library Links on the left of the Google Scholar settings page.

4) Type in Kaplan then click the search button. 

5) You should see "Kaplan Higher Ed - EBSCOhost full text" as an option.  Click the small box next to this option so there is a checkmark in it, then click Save

6) When you use Google Scholar, you should see an "EBSCOhost Full Text" link if one of our EBSCO databases has the full text.

After setting up Google Scholar to show EBSCOhost full text links of available articles, always enter Google Scholar from the Kaplan Online Library to make sure you're able to access the full text links.  Also, while this is an added bonus for lovers of Google Scholar, it does not have everything the Library offers.  

If you're a Kaplan University student, you can also use this shortcut:

A few search tips:

  • Add filetype:pdf to the end of a search so that Google only shows you full text results.
  • If you see a "No results found" page after clicking an "EBSCOhost Full Text" link, try looking for the article's title using our main EBSCO Discovery Service search to find the article (the search box on our homepage).
