Tulane Library Toolkit

This guide provides a variety of tools that may be used to by tutors and academic counselors working with students to achieve academic success.

Connecting to Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a great tool for finding scholarly materials when the Library's interface seems too foreign to navigate. However, most academic resources require you to pay for them before letting you access them. You can get around this by changing your settings in Google Scholar so that you can search in Google Scholar but get access to articles via the Library without having to pay extra.

If they don't want to ask us in person or are out of town, students can search the Library's FAQ for answers. You can either send them directly to the FAQ ( or embed the widget in your own guide. 

Here are two lines of embed code that you'll need for the Ask search box below:
