Chances are you've found a citation to something that looks interesting but you can't tell if it's in our library. Here's the quickest way to find out.
If the source is a book or a chapter in a book, search Worldcat by the book title. It will tell you if it's in our library. If it isn't, click on the title in another library and use the "Find it @ Gustavus" link to fill out an interlibrary loan form.
If the source is a journal or magazine article, search our Journals List using the journal title (not the article title). This should tell you what databases offer full text of journals and which years are covered or if we have the journal in print. If your journal is not there, you will have to log in and fill out an interlibrary loan form.
Not sure what you've got? Ask a reference librarian.
When you have an article with references, you can see if a particular reference is available by looking the journal's name up at the link below. Then you can use the volume and date information to navigate to the article. If we don't have access to that journal, we usually can get it from another library.
