Google Scholar and "Invalid domain for site key"

Off-campus users may experience problems using Google Scholar to access University of Guelph library resources. Some users have reported seeing the following error:

"ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key"

This is related to Google Scholar's interactions with our proxy server. If you experience this error and are off-campus, a possible workaround is to go directly to Google Scholar (i.e., not through our proxy server). We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have this problem fixed soon.

We would also like to remind users that if they want to connect their Google Scholar with the University of Guelph Library so that they would see the 'Get It @ Guelph' button they need to follow these instructions:  Connecting Google Scholar with University of Guelph Library
