MultiSearch will search simultaneously for articles on your topic within several databases and thousands of journals.
The result list will give a ranking of the article, the author, title, year it was published, the title of the database that retrieved the article, and action. Clicking the action's "Find It!" button will assist in locating the article online, finding a print version of the article, or obtaining a copy of the article through interlibrary loan.
