Tracking Down a Citation

When you'd like to track down a citation, complete the following steps:

  1. Identify the Citation -- is it a book, book chapter or article?

  2. If the item is a book, search WorldCat

  3. If the item is an article, use Article Look up by Citation

Before Giving Up

If you're frustrated and thinking about giving up your search for a book, search the following places:

  1. Google Books - you might find a preview of the book or more information.
  2. - you might find a few pages that will help you decide if the book is worth locating.
  3. - find out which library has it.

If you know the book exists in another area/SUNY library, you can make the decision to go there (with the RRLC Access Card or your Brockport ID) or request the item through Interlibrary Loan.
