About Google Scholar CASA

Google Scholar's Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) enables you to take MQ Library subscriptions off campus without having to use a VPN or other authentication service.

It is automatically enabled in Google Scholar. Unchecking the Signed-out off-campus access links box in the Google Scholar settings page will disable access to the MQ Library subscriptions and participating publishers.

How it works

  • Sign in to your Google account while you are on campus or when connected to MQ Library’s proxy service or VPN
  • Search for an article using Google Scholar; it will automatically create a link between your Google account and MQ’s subscriptions
  • You will now be able to access MQ Library's resources when off campus using the same Google account
  • You will need to refresh the link after thirty days by accessing Google Scholar while on campus or when connected to MQ Library’s proxy service or VPN

Note: Signing in to your Google account is optional but it creates a useful link between all your associated devices (i.e., mobile, tablet, laptop, and/or desktop).
