How to ...FindIt @ UM

You'll find the finditatumorange.png button in our indexing and abstracting databases.

Because these databases are sometimes not completely full-text, you'll need to click on the "Findit" button to access the article you are looking for.

If the article is available full-text in another database, the "Findit" button will lead you to the a link called "article," which will take you to the full text of your article.
