Use Library Articles Search

Try the library's article discovery tool, Library Articles Search for searching across thousands of publishers and millions of documents.  As part of your search, you can limit your results to articles from scholarly journals, from newspapers, or to articles that are available fulltext.

To use Library Articles Search, simply go to the U-M Library gateway page, click on the Library Articles Search tab over the Search box, enter your search terms and click "Search."   This search feature is available also at the AAEL page:


Things to remember:
Library Articles Search is a very good way to start researching a particular topic.
Library Articles Search is great for multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research.
Library Articles Search does not replace subject specific databases for specialized searching, so don't forget about the Avery Index, JSTOR, ScienceDirect, or any of those other standards you've become accustomed to using.
Library Articles Search has some e-books, but is not Library Catalog Search; if you want books, search Library Catalog Search.
