The following tools can be used to connect to Ryerson Library resources and services from other sites on the web.
For Google Scholar to know that you are affiliated with Ryerson (and that you should have access to Ryerson resources), you will need to configure your Google Scholar Preferences as follows:
- Go to scholar.google.ca and click on the Settings icon
- Choose Library Links from the left-hand menu
- Enter Ryerson in the search box
- Click in the box beside Ryerson University Get it! @ Ryerson
- Scroll down and click on the Save Preferences button
Once configured, you will see Get It! @ Ryerson links when you search Google Scholar and you will have access to all Ryerson’s subscription resources.
As you browse books and ebooks on sites such as Amazon GoodReads and Librarything, the Library Extension will check the Ryerson Library catalogue and display the availability of that title on the page you are browsing. Available for Chrome and Firefox.
- The extension will install a book icon beside the url address box in your browser. Click on the books icon and configure it to check the Ryerson catalogue.
