Q. Why doesn't Find it! find a match, even when the catalog says that full text should be available?

At times, index databases encode the article citations differently from information stored at the publisher's journal site. For example, the index may not include an ISSN or ISBN (international standard serial number or international standard book number). Or the journal name may be spelled with an ampersand ("&") instead of the word "and." There are lots of ways that the details of the citation can vary between one database and another.

If Find it! has not located full text for you, it is a good idea to search the library catalog for complete holdings information.
