Question:

What is Citation Finder and how do I use it? How do I get the article when all I have is the citation?

Answer:

Citation Finder can help you find full-text journal articles quickly or link you to our print journals.  To use Citation Finder:

  • Fill in the form giving as much information as you have about the article. You don’t need a complete citation, but you must fill in the required fields.
  • Click Submit, and you will see if the journal is available online in our collection. If it is, click the blue arrow to see the full text of the article online.
  • If we don’t have the e-journal, click on the CLIO link to see if we have a print copy of the journal. You can photocopy the article from the print journal.
  • If we have neither an online nor print version of the journal, Citation Finder directs you to Interlibrary Loan.

For more information on using Citation Finder, please Ask a Librarian. To locate Citation Finder, go to the E-Resources menu on the Libraries website.
