During busy times of the semester Google Scholar seems to be interpreting users coming to Google Scholar through the library as bots. If you encounter this problem, try this approach:

  • Go to
  • Click on the cog for settings
  • Click on "Library Links" in the left menu
  • Search for Vancouver Island University and select "Vancouver Island University Libraries - Get it from Library@VIU"
  • Save settings and proceed with searching.

For these settings to persist, you will need to be logged into your Google account.
