SIR - Student Inquiry and Research: Off-Campus Authentication

IRC & Google Scholar

You may have noticed that when you search Google Scholar at IMSA, you can link to articles in the IRC's databases, which will provide you with many full-text articles (not just the citation or a link to buy the article!). That is because Google Scholar knows from your IP address that you are at IMSA & you have access to IRC databases.

If you are at home, you will need to tell Google Scholar that you have access to IRC databases.
