When trying to access Google Scholar, you may sometimes run into the following error: "ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key." This sometimes happen when too many people are accessing Google Scholar through our proxy server.

To still view the Libraries' holding through Google Scholar, try the following steps:

  1. Go to
  2. Click the three lines in the top left corner.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Library Links.
  5. Search for Washington University in St. Louis, check the box next to the result, and save your settings (you can also add other libraries or even Worldcat).
  6. You can now continue to search and should see the Get it @ WU links next to articles and books we have access to.
