How to ...FindIt @ UM

You'll find the find_it_at_um_button.jpg button in our index and abstract databases.

Because these databases are rarely full-text, you'll need to click on the button to access the article you are looking for.

In the event that there is not an online, full-text version of the article available, the best thing is to do a Title search (using the name of the journal) in the Catalog tab.

Once you've located the journal, you can find the necessary volume and issue by reading the citation.
