Scholar Preferences vs. No Scholar Preferences

When Google Scholar preferences are set to "Pepperdine University - Find Full Text," you will see hyperlinks (highlighted) to the right of search results that will help you navigate to Pepperdine Library resources.  

If you do not see a "Find Full Text" hyperlinks, either (1) Pepperdine may not have the article or book or (2) your Scholar preferences are not set.
