How Can I Use the Proxy with Google Scholar?

If you use Google Scholar for research, you will first need to configure your Library Links in Google Scholar's Preferences.

  1. Search the Library Links for University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Open WorldCat.
  2. Click Save Preferences.

​After configuring your Library Links in Preferences, all Kraemer Family Library links within Google Scholar will be proxied for off-campus access.

Keyword Development and Ancestry Searching

Subject Terms

Most databases will include a list of subject terms for each article to show what concepts or terms that database uses to organize the article. These terms are great to add to your search to find similar results and to expand your search keywords. You can find them in a few different places:


If you're searching in OneSearch, you can see the subject terms for a source by clicking on the More Info option below each source:

CINAHL or Other EBSCO Products (MEDLINE, PsycINFO, SportDiscus)

If you're searching in CINAHL or another Ebsco database, you find subject terms on the detailed record page (page that appears after you click the article title in the results list). They are usually listed above the abstract as Major Subject Terms, Subject Terms, etc. 


In PubMed, you can find additional MeSH terms to use as keywords by viewing the article record and expanding the section labeled Publication Type, MeSH terms

MeSH (Medical Subject Headings)

Medical subject headings (MeSH) are the controlled vocabulary used by the National Library of Medicine. The NLM created the database MEDLINE and the search tool PubMed. MeSH are applied to any article indexed in MEDLINE by subject analysts at the NLM, so MeSH can be used to search in MEDLINE and PubMed. Although other databases don't necessarily use MeSH to categorize articles, they're helpful terms to know because they provide a commonly recognized medical name for a condition, intervention, population, or concept. 

You can match your topic to MeSH using the MeSH search tool: https://meshb.nlm.nih.gov/search

Ask a Librarian!

Developing keyword ideas is one of Susan's favorite things to do! Feel free to contact her via email (svandagr@uccs.edu) or Make an Appointment to meet with her at the library, UHALL, the Hybl Center, or virtually.

Ancestry searching is a technique that looks for more information by finding the articles cited by a source (parents) and the articles that also site that source (children). It's called ancestry searching because you are looking both back and forward in the "generations" of research.

1. Finding Parents (Cited Sources)
  • Use the works cited list on your article. Do any of the sources sound like they deal with the same topics? Are they recent enough to meet the requirements of your assignment?
  • Make a list of the articles you are interested in.
  • Use Google Scholar or OneSearch to look them up and determine their availability. 
2. Finding Children (Sources Citing Your Source)
  •  Put the title of your source into Google Scholar. 
  •  When you've found your source as a result, click on the Cited By link below it.

  •  Do any of the sources sound like they deal with the same topics? 
  •  If you get too many Cited By  results, you can check the Search Within Citing Articles box and enter additional keywords (probably the same as you've been using to research your topic) to limit the results to those that are most relevant to you.
