Before you can get full-text access to many articles in Google Scholar, you need to change your settings so that Google knows you're affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh.

To do this, go to and select "Settings" at the top of the screen. Select "Library Links". Search for the University of Pittsburgh, and select University of Pittsburgh - Full Text @ Pitt and University of Pittsburgh-Health Sciences Library System - Links @ Pitt-UPMC. Then, save your settings.

Now when you do a search, your results will reflect full-text access to journals to which the ULS subscribes. Follow the "Full-Text @ Pitt" link to the right of the citation to view the article.

To watch in full screen: Follow this link, or click Play, and then click the small yellow box in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
