Google Scholar Library: Add Scholar Search Results To Your Library

scholar_logo_lg_2011Google announced a new feature within Google Scholar named “My Library.”

This new section lets you save articles right from the search page, organize them by topic, and search full-text within your library to find what you are looking for.

To enable this feature, you need to click on the “My Library” link on the left side after doing a search and then sign in. After you are signed in, you can click the red “Enable your Scholar library” button.

This is how it works: Click “Save” below a search result to save it to your library. Click “My library” to see all the articles in your library and search their full text. You can also use labels to organize your articles. Google created two labels for everyone by default, “My Citations” and “Cited by me”, based on your Scholar profile, if you have one. “My Citations” contains your profile articles and “Cited by me” contains articles you’ve cited.

    Do you know if there are any plans to make this option shareable? It would be great if students had shared reading lists, possibly created by teachers and then added to by students. That would be a cool way of using this option.
