Google created a Google Scholar Button Chrome extension: Look up scholarly articles as you browse the web

Just learned about this on one of my listservs  — try it!

Google created a Google Scholar Button Chrome extension.

From the description:
Lookup scholarly articles as you browse the web.
This extension adds a browser button for easy access to Google Scholar from any web page. Click the Scholar button to:
– Find full text on the web or in your university library. Select the title of the paper on the page you’re reading, and click the Scholar button to find it.
– Transfer your query from web search to Scholar. Press the Scholar button to see top three results; click “full screen” in the lower left of the popup to see them all.
