Finding citations

Library catalog

When you have a book you want to read, copy and paste the author and title into the library catalog search.

For example, to find "LGBT health: meeting the needs of gender and sexual minorities" edited by K. Bryant Smalley, Jacob C Warren, and K. Nikki Barefoot, search LGBT health: meeting the needs of gender and sexual minorities smalley (title and first author last name).

When you have an article with a DOI (digital object identifier), copy and paste the DOI into the DOI lookup tool:

For example:

Hardwig, J. (2015). Men and Abortion Decisions. Hastings Center Report, 45(2), 41–45. **

Paste 10.1002/hast.432 into the search box.

Search Hardwig Men and Abortion Decisions in the library catalog. If your search isn't successful, try adding quotes around the title of the article.

Click View full text and follow one of the links to read the article.

Google Scholar

For articles, Google Scholar is also a good choice to find the full text when the article doesn't have a DOI. It doesn't work as well with books.

In the example above, search at least the author's last name and title (although it's possible to search the full citation). Do not click the title or the PDF link. Instead, click Full Text @ Wabash, highlighted below
