Q. Why doesn't Find it! always take me directly to the article?

Why do I sometimes have to browse or search to locate the article I need?

Find it! uses a standard called OpenURL. Not all journals or electronic resources that our Libraries subscribe to are capable of answering an OpenURL request.

If a journal is not "OpenURL aware," the Find it! service will attempt to give you a link as close to the full text as possible. In some cases this will be on the journal main page, or on a page with the issue and date of your article.
