Do not use the Google Scholar search box on the UGA Libraries's homepage right now. Instead, try the steps below.
UGA student and faculty have notified us of intermittent problems with Google Scholar access. We are not the only campus and library affected. The problems seem to be on Google's side, but the UGA Libraries is working to see if we can solve it or work around it.

This will hopefully display a results list for a search on the term 'bananas'. You can then change the search terms in the search box to your own search terms.
This process will tell Google Scholar that it should display the ViewIt@UGA button and link to full-text of the articles to which we subscribe.
You should now be able to search Google Scholar and will get prompted to log into the UGA CAS (proxy server) if you need to access an article to which UGA Libraries subscribes.
We are not sure yet what is causing this and if we can fix it or if Google needs to fix it. If you really want the details it seems that Google thinks there are too many people using the UGA proxy server (CAS MyID) to access Google Scholar. We do not know what that limit is or why they think this. The solutions to the left might help you work around the problem. There are other libraries experiencing the same problems with Google Scholar and none that we know of have been able to get a response from Google.
