HIST/AAAS 379- America at Mid-Passage: Scholarly Articles

Taught by Betsy Schlabach

Finding Known Articles

Steps for finding items listed in bibliographies

  1. Locate a bibliographic citation. Look at the list of sources in subject encyclopedias and bibliographies.
     
  2. Determine if the source is a book or an article in a journal. Some clues
    Does it have volume and/or issue numbers? Does the date include a month? Then it's most likely from a journal.
    Is a publisher and/or place of publication included in the citation? Then it is probably from a book.
  3. Check to see if we have local access to the item or can obtain through interlibrary loan.
  4. What if we don't own it?  Request it from another through interlibrary loan. Log into Illiad to create the request or use the Interlibrary Loan links in WorldCat and article databases. Interlibrary Loan is free for students!
