Optimize Google Scholar

When Google Scholar knows you're connected to IIT, it can link you directly to any articles you search for that IIT has in full-text. This lets you use Google's great indexing capabilities to get linked to the more than 40,000 full-text journals that IIT subscribes to. 

From your favorite browser, go to the Library Links section of the Google Scholar settings. Add "Illinois Institute of Technology" to the library links section. This will allow Google Scholar to access IIT's databases to locate your article in full-text.
