Once You Have Citations

Often the most challenging part of finding books and articles is finding the source itself once you know it exists. In many cases, the database will provide a link to full text. But when it doesn't, or if the link doesn't work, what do you do?


Here's a book indexed in Soc Abstracts

Duek, Carolina and GastoĢn Tourn. "Social Media: Transformation of Education." In Social Media and Social Movements: The Transformation of Communication Patterns, 404-427: Lexington, 2016.

Use the book title (italicized) to search WorldCat Discovery on the Memorial Library web page. You'll find that we have a print copy at call number HM851 .S643 2016 in the Main Book Collection on 2nd Floor, as well as an ebook version 


Here's journal citation from Anthro Plus:

Vincent, Carol, Sarah Neal, and Humera Iqbal. 2018. “Living in the City: School Friendships, Diversity and the Middle Classes.” British Journal of Sociology 69 (2): 352–71.

Enter the title of the journal (italicized) in the search box. Look for Full Text Available listings that include the year you need & click on the journal title.

If there's no link to full text, look for Print copies at your library. Click on the journal title & look carefully at the holdings information to determine location.
