The University of Mississippi Library created a profile to provide linking from Google Scholar to library resources in 2005. Although Google Scholar does not provide usage statistics for institutions, use of Google Scholar is clearly evident in looking at library link resolver logs. The purpose of this project is to examine users of Google Scholar using existing data from interlibrary loan transactions and library website click-through logs and analytics. Questions about user status and discipline as well as behaviors related to use of other library resources, are explored.
