Finding Journals

The Journal search allows you to search for journals available at UM. If you know the title of the journal you can enter it into the search box. If you are not looking for a specific journal you can browse by discipline. If UM doesn’t own the journal you are looking for, we can obtain copies of articles for you via interlibrary loan.
