Library Databases

Google Scholar

You can set your browser to have Google Scholar link to full text articles in UNLV Libraries' databases from any computer you use.  You will see UNLV Find Text link at the bottom of the citation or a next to the title.  If you are using Google Scholar from a campus computer it should automatically recognize you as a Western user.

To set Google Scholar up for off-campus access:

  1. Go to http://scholar.google.com/
  2. Use the downward facing arrow (next to the "my citations" link) in the upper right hand corner.'
  3. Click on "settings"
  4. Click on "Library Links" in the left navigation field
  5. Search for University of Nevada, Las Vegas (NOT UNLV)  in the box that comes up.
  6. Tick the box next to both entries that come up with "university of nevada, las vegas" in their titles.

RefWorks

Log Into "New" RefWorks

You can create a new account using your UNLV e-mail at the link above.  

Log Into "Legacy" RefWorks 

You can still use your "Legacy" RefWorks account, but it will be phased out by January 2018, so you may want to move your account to the New RefWorks. Using both old and New RefWorks within one document in Write-n-Cite can cause problems, so finish your projects before making the switch.

**How To Transfer Citations From Legacy To New Account

If you had an account in the old version of RefWorks you will need to transition to the new version.  Login to your  RefWorks account from the main login page and then click the link in the far upper left corner of your account screen that reads, "Move to the newest version of RefWorks from ProQuest" to transfer all of your citations.

What is RefWorks?

  • Organize your research
  • Create a bibliography in a variety of citation styles, including APA, MLA and Chicago
  • Import references from many data sources
  • Create bibliographies in different document formats (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.)
  • Include citations while you write your paper
