This database is freely available to the general public via the Internet.



Google Scholar is an easy-to-use, web-based database that indexes and and searches peer-reviewed journal articles, books, theses, preprints, and technical reports from all areas of research. Although Google Scholar holds much potential, it should NOT replace the UB library Catalog or subject-specific databases when conducting library research.

On-Campus Use
When you search Google Scholar from on the UB campus it recognizes you are entitled by licensing agreements to view full-text articles.

Off-Campus Use
If you are a current member of the UB community and using Google Scholar from off-network, you should complete the following steps:

  • Go to:
  • Click on "Settings" in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Click on "Library Links" on the left-hand side
  • On the next screen, type University at Buffalo into the "Library Links" box. 
  • Scroll down and click on "Save ."
  • Start searching.
  • When you link to a full-text article from off campus you will be presented with a log-in screen. Log in with your UBIT name and password.
