    Google Scholar - "Invalid Domain for Site Key" ErrorGoogle reCaptcha Error

    In an effort to optimize user experience during peak activity, Google Scholar may prompt Northern Michigan University patrons to complete a reCAPTCHA widget to verify their non-robot status. Unfortunately, a security glitch in Google's widget may result in an "Invalid domain for site key" error for patrons accessing the Library's off-campus proxy server.

    Workaround:

    If you possess a Google Account, you can integrate it with the Library using the following steps:

    1. Visit the un-proxied version of Google Scholar at https://scholar.google.com.
    2. Click the "Sign In" button and log in with your NMU account (xxxx@nmu.edu).
    3. From the menu icon (three bars at the top left), select "Settings," then choose "Library Links."
    4. In the Library Links section of the Settings menu, confirm that "Northern Michigan University - Get it@NMU," is selected.
    5. If it is not already selected, search for Northern Michigan University in the search bar. Then, select the checkbox next to "Northern Michigan University - Get it@NMU," click the "Save" button in the lower right.

    Once saved, you can return to the Google Scholar homepage. You should now be able to explore Google Scholar without utilizing NMU's off-campus proxy, while still having access to the "Get it@NMU" links directing you to our full-text databases.

    If the provided workaround does not resolve your Google Scholar access issues, we recommend patience, as Google typically resets the faulty reCAPTCHA requirement after approximately 24 hours.
