Tracking Down a Citation
Advanced Researchers use many different strategies to track down resources on a subject. Try the following:
- Search by critic/scholar name to see what else that person has written - hopefully on your subject.
- In ProQuest and Academic Search Complete, once you open an article record by clicking on the title, the author's name is a keyword link to all that person's works 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.
- ProQuest and Academic Search Complete also link directly to article References. In ProQuest you can use Cited by to see who cited the article.
- 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.
- Paste or type in the work title. For long titles, try just the opening.
