  1. In Google Scholar, go to the Settings.
  2. Click "Library Links" on the left side.
  3. Search for "National University San Diego".
  4. Check the box next to "National University (San Diego, Calif.) - Full Text at NU" and click "Save".
  5. Search results will now include links to materials in National University Library. Right click on the "Get it@NULS" link to to open the full-text resource in a new window or tab.

If the linker does not direct you to the full text, you may search for articles by title using the Library's NavigatorSearch (formerly Roadrunner). See the question: I have a citation for a journal article. How do I find the full text? Contact the Library for assistance.
