Use Citation Mining to Find Relevant Sources
Advanced Researchers use many different strategies to track down resources on a subject.
Try the following strategies:
- Search by critic/scholar name to see what else that person has written - hopefully on your subject.
- In ProQuest and Academic Search Complete, click on a title to open an article record. The author's name is hyperlinked to other works by that author indexed in our collections. (WorldCat would offer a more comprehensive overview).
- You may also just search the author's name. Change the Search Field to AU Author.
- Read closely through the Works Cited at the end of a helpful source and use the library One Search to see if we carry works that sound relevant.
- ProQuest and Academic Search Complete also link directly to article References.
- In ProQuest you can use Cited by to see who cited the article.
To track down articles from a works cited list:
- Paste or type in the work title. For long titles, try just the opening.
- If we don't have the article in our collection, you may borrow it through InterLibrary Loan
