Searching for articles

Have a topic that you want to research? There are a couple of ways to do this. You can choose the Article QuickSearch link in the Search UM Libraries box on the right hand side of the web page. This will take you to a page which allows you to search several databases at once. Your search will be fairly broad and frankly we have had problems using this resource. I strongly recommend that you use the Databases link and search databases specific to your profession. Below are some recommended databases that will help you locate the information you need. To access our databases, click on the Databases tab in the Search UM Libraries box and type in the name of the database. You may also choose to browse the Databases by academic area or category. Within each database you will see a link to the full text or a link to Search for Full Text in Other Databases or a link to order it through InterLibrary Loan if we do not own a copy of the article.
