3. Search University of Minnesota
4. Check the box next to “University of Minnesota - FindIt@U of M Twin Cities?


5. Click “Save Preferences?

Now when you search in Google Scholar the “FindIT? link will appear and you can see the full text for free!

Remember: As faculty, staff and students of the University of Minnesota you should never pay to access an article online. If the library doesn’t have access, make an Interlibrary Loan request. Then the library will find you a copy at no extra charge.
