This guide has been developed as an introduction to the Find It Discovery Service at UFV.
Find It is a great place to start your research. It helps you quickly find relevant resources on a subject, without having to decide which database(s) to search. The facets allow you to limit your search results in a variety of ways, including date range, source type, subject, and scholarly designation. The library's catalogued resources are also integrated into the search results.
