Here's a short video showing how Find it @ MU works. (About 4 minutes long.)
Two common ways to find out if the Libraries have access to the articles you need:
Click on in the article citation. Another window / tab opens with two possible options:
The MARQCAT record will indicate what years we have in print and/or online, providing call number locations for the print and links to the e-journal. Once at the e-journal, navigate to the volume, issue and page that you need.
Didn't find the article/journal using Find it @MU or MARQCAT? Request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) by clicking on the link at the bottom of the Find it @MU window or tab. Learn more about ILL here.

Try these to get more specific or broader results
• Use a * to include forms or variants of words in your search
• Example: type test* to search for test, testing, tests
• By inserting quotes around an exact phrase, you will search only the words you type in, in that exact order with no words in between term.
• Example: "consumer product chemistry"
• Using AND, OR, NOT can broaden or narrow a search depending on your inquiry. "AND" will give you results that contain both words. "OR" will give results about either word and "NOT" will not search the term preceding.
• Example: Summer AND Flower, Summer OR Flower, Summer NOT flower
Adding a ~
• Adding a tilde (~) to your search term will return related terms.
• Example: ~nutrition will search also nutrition, food and health
Adding a -
• Adding a negative (-) to your search term will take away that term in your search.
• Example: Pets -cats will not find web sites that focus upon cats as pets.
