Problem with Google Scholar import

Monday 21st May 2012: the ‘Import into WebLearn’ link from Google Scholar has vanished from the new-look interface. It turns out that this was intentional and Google do not plan to rectify the matter.

This affects the ability to search and import from Google Scholar from within the Reading Lists tool (Resources). Search and import from SOLO is not affected.

There is a workaround:

  1. click on the link on the bottom “Revert to old venerable look
  2. close the popup window
  3. click on “Search Google Scholar” in WebLearn

You should now see “Import into WebLearn” again.

We plan to patch WebLearn to take users to the old interface but we do not know how long Google will support this view; one day it may disappear without warning!
