Some Databases to Get Started!

Getting the Article: Find It!

Once you retrieve a list of articles on a given topic, you’re still not done. Browse through your list of results, read abstracts when they are available, and identify potential sources meeting your needs. 

After you identify a potential source, your next step is to find out whether or not the article is available full text or in print. To do this, look for information about full text availability or follow the Find It!link.

Find It! is a mechanism embedded in most databases to help users identify potential sources of full text and print options. For more details about full-text and print options at BGSU, visit Find It!: How to use Find It! in OhioLINK databases, BGSU databases, and Summon.

Don’t forget to ask for help from a librarian if you are having difficulty deciphering Find It! information.
