I can't access Google Scholar. I keep getting "reCAPTCHA" or "invalid domain" errors. How can I resolve this issue?

Do you get an error message (similar to the one below) when using Google Scholar?

reCAPTCHA box reading - ERROR for site owner: Invalid domain for site key

This block only becomes an issue when using the proxied version (i.e. with MacID login) of Google Scholar. The block will eventually be lifted by Google, but to avoid Recaptcha or Invalid Domain errors, use the search box on the library's Google Scholar page or set up Library Links.

Review the description and help sections on the library's Google Scholar page for more information on how to resolve Google Scholar access issues and error messages.
