First, if you are accessing Google Scholar directly on the internet, verify that you have linked Google Scholar to the Walden Library.


The manual connection lives in the browser's settings. When you clear your cache it will clear this setting. You will have to reconnect to the Walden Library after clearing your cache.Learn how to connect Google Scholar to the Walden Library.

If you access Google Scholar from our webpage it will automatically connect to the Walden Library databases. 

Second, check if the Library subscribes to the journal in which the article was published. Google Scholar is a powerful tool, but sometimes it cannot find items in our databases even when we do have them.

If the Walden Library does not have the article, you may be able to locate a copy at a library in your area or request the article using our Document Delivery Service.
