How can I set up Google Scholar to work from off-campus?

If you are off-campus, you can set your Scholar Settings to show the "Check Holy Cross Holdings" links for accessing sources that Holy Cross has access to.  You can modify your settings by selecting Settings  from the menu in the upper-left corner of Google Scholar webpage, and then choosing Library Links from the menu. 

When you click on the "Check Holy Cross Holdings" link, you'll be asked to enter your username and password, and then you will be able to read the source.

Note that Holy Cross library holdings are auto-enabled when you are on-campus, the same as database access -- so you should only need to do this when using Google Scholar while off-campus.
