We’ve been making some changes behind the scenes to our Find It button, which you may have seen in many of our article databases. If you see in your search results, you can click on it to see if we have full text access to articles or to link to our library catalog and interlibrary loan request forms.
Some of the improvements we’ve made are:
- The Find It! button will take you directly to our ‘best bet’ for full text from any of our resources. (see Figure 1)
- If for some reason our ‘best bet’ doesn’t bring up full text (or if you’re asked to pay), just click on the link in the upper right to go to a full list of all possible sources for full text. (see Figures 1 & 2)
- Additional options from the full list include searching for the title in our library catalog, submitting an ILLiad interlibrary loan request, exporting the citation to EndNote, or searching for the title words in Google Scholar. (See Figure 2)
We plan to include the updated Find It! button in all of our databases before the Fall semester begins, but you may see some of the old style links in some databases until we work with each database vendor to make the change.
