Access links

The search results are presented on the screen with an access link on the right.

There are different types of access links:

  • articles your library subscribes to,
  • Open Access articles,
  • free-to-read publishers' articles or pre-prints
  • articles in repositories, etc.

Set up library links

When you are on a campus network, access links automatically include Hanze Library subscriptions and direct you to subscribed versions of articles.


When you use Google Scholar via the A-Z list of databases of the Hanze Library, after logging in, you are automatically on the Proxy server of the Hanze UAS and the search engine knows which paid content you have access to.


Off-campus access links let you take Hanze Library subscriptions with you when you are at home or traveling. To be able to this you will need to configure your Scholar to use a library proxy. Go to:

and choose in 'Settings' the option 'Library links'

  • Type the name of your educational institution in the bar, select it from the list and click save
  • The search results in Google Scholar now show (where possible) links to the paid content in the databases, also outside the campus.
