How to Use FIND IT!: Additional Features

About FIND IT!, D'Amour Library's resource discovery system.

 Extra Help on the Results Page

Did you know that D'Amour has subject guides containing research information tailored to certain subjects or even specific classes?

These subject guides are integrated into FIND IT!, so if D'Amour has a guide that relates to your search it will show up in the list of search results.

For instance, when searching for "mental health AND college"...

If you were to click the "PSY 326: Abnormal Psychology" link in the example above, it would lead you to a page that looks like this:

Our research guides will very likely lead you to extra resources useful for research on your topic! 

 Citing in FIND IT!

Though FIND IT! is web-based, the resources you pull from it shouldn't be cited as web pages. Instead, you'll want to cite your sources as what they are fundamentally.

A journal article accessed online is still a journal article, an ebook is still a book, and so on.

To help you get started, the results in FIND IT! all include a Cite link. You can use this link to auto-create citations about each source.

But remember! Auto-created citations are not always 100% accurate. Always double-check your created citations with a citation guide
