Linking from Databases to Full-text

The databases listed to the left will lead you to scholarly articles. If you do not find the html or pdf full-text of the article in the database, just click Find it @ MUnext to the article citation.  The article will display if available electronically.  If there is no online access, you'll be given the opportunity to look for a print copy in the MERLIN Catalog.

For example, countr* would search for all results containing the words country or countries. Tour* would retrieve tour, tours, tourism, tourist, etc.
