What is Find It?
As you search some of the databases, you may encounter a yellow "Find It" button for articles that are not available in full text in a particular database. If you click on the Find It button, you may find a link to a database or journal website where the article is available in full text.  If the item is not available in full text in any of our library resources, there will be a link to request it via our free library service, DocumentExpress

Why isn't there a full-text link for my article?
When the full-text link is absent, it means either that the UMGC Library does not subscribe to the full-text version or that Find It can't link to the full text yet. You can use the "Request it from DocumentExpress" link to request a copy through our free DocumentExpress service.

How do I limit my search to only find full-text articles?
OneSearch and most other databases have a "full text" box you can check to only search for full-text articles. Please note that when using this option, you will not see any yellow "find it" buttons, so you may miss articles that are available in another database or available for request via DocumentExpress
