Through a collaborative effort between Google Scholar and UMGC's library, some Google Scholar search results link to full-text articles available through the Library's research databases. Be sure to access Google Scholar through the library's A–Z list of databases. Authentication will ensure that you are linked to articles in the UMGC Library's research databases.
