- Articles Plus
ArticlesPlus is perhaps best described as "Google for the library's online content - without the ads!" From a simple single search box, ArticlesPlus searches full-text content as well as metadata from a wide variety of sources and returns a list of relevancy-ranked results.
- ProQuest Research Library
Covers a broad range of scholarly journals, magazines, trade publications and dissertations in many different disciplines.
- ISI Web of Science
Key index to articles from major journals in all areas of science and technology. Use to find other articles citing a specific article.
The library's catalog of materials that it owns.
- Google Scholar
Searches for scholarly documents on the World Wide Web, with the added feature of "Availability at UMichigan" links.
- General OneFile
Similar to ProQuest but it's a good idea to try both.
