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.

Using Other Libraries

Unfortunately, the Brockport collection may not have everything you need for graduate studies at Brockport.  Here are a few other sources of which to be aware:

  • WorldCat Classic  
    This is a catalog of ALL libraries, regardless of distance or ease of delivery. To obtain items from this catalog that are NOT labeled Brockport, use Interlibrary Loan.
