Citation Searching

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Tips for effective searching:
1.  Look at all writings by a relevant author and co-authors.
2.  Explore the bibliography of a relevant article for more articles.
3.  Discover whether the articles have been cited since publication.

Use Citation Indexes to find if a particular author and/or paper has been cited by other authors.
