There are several ways to get full text from Harvard databases through Google Scholar: 

1. Set up Google Scholar to search Harvard databases.  Go to the Google Scholar page. At the top of the page you will see a link to Settings. Go to Library Links and type in Harvard. Select Harvard University-Find It @ Harvard. Save your preferences. To have your preferences saved for the next time you use Google Scholar, make sure to sign in with your Google account.

2. Use Google Scholar through the Harvard Libraries' web page. All of the artilces will have a "FindIt@Harvard" button next to them that will link you to full text if it is available through Harvard.

3. Download the "Harvard LibX" toolbar extension to your browser. The LibX tool will take you through the Harvard proxy server with a simple right click (or ctrl click on a Mac) to reload the article web page through Harvard's access. LibX also offers several other nice features. If you need help setting up LibX, try the video below from the Law Library.

4. Use the Harvard Library Proxy Bookmarklet:
