  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. Click the three lines at the top of the page (the "hamburger menu") then click Settings (next to the gear icon).
  3. Click Library Links
  4. Type in Toronto, then hit enter to search
  5. Click the box next to University of Toronto Libraries - Check for full text
  6. Click Save

Now you will be able to access materials that UofT has licensed.
