Yes, in the past, we have said that this cannot be done reliably and we have recommended against this.
And while we still say it should not be relied on as your only means of searching for articles, it is now actually possible to do a fairly thorough of RMU Library resources using Google — if you follow a few simple steps.
1. Use Google Scholar (not just Google). You can access Google Scholar by going to the “more” tab across the top of the main Google search screen and selecting “Scholar.” http://scholar.google.com/
2. On the right-hand side of the Google Scholar search box, you will see a link that says Scholar Preferences, select it.
3. On the “Scholar Preferences” page, scroll down to the section that says Library Links. In the search box next to “Library Links,” type in Robert Morris University and click on the Find Library button.
4. If you have set up a RefWorks account, you could also select RefWorks from the pull-down menu under the category Bibliographic Manager.
5. To set the above preferences, select Save Preferences toward the bottom of the preferences page.
Lastly, while using Google Scholar is great for beginning your research, the only one to limit your search to particular years, publications, specific subject terms, particular types of articles, etc., is to access individual library database subscriptions through the Find Articles link and then select the individual database(s) you would like to search.
