Google Scholar and Library Links 

If you are searching for online materials on databases that are not connected to the NWP Learning Commons, like Google Scholar, you might be asked to pay for materials before you can access them. Do not pay for online materials! First, check to see if NWP already has access to the sources by searching for the title in our catalogue or by adding Library Links to your Google Scholar. This lets Google Scholar knows that you are an NWP student and will flag resources as "Available at NWP."
