Citation Tracking: Finding articles by citation

Once you have one (or more) useful article on a topic, use the references at the end of article to find more sources on your topic using our Citation Search tool.  This helps you see what was written previous to your current article, often called citing backward.

Use Google Scholar to see who has cited your article after it was published.  This helps you see what has been written after your article was published, citing forward.

Interlibrary Loan

If UR doesn't have the article or book you need, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that will deliver a copy to you. PDFs of articles usually arrive in two days or less!  If you have the citation of the item you wish to request, go to the ILL page: https://illiad.lib.rochester.edu 
& log in with your NetID to request an item.  

From within any of the library any databases, click the button.  It will find the full text of your article online if it's available through the libraries. Or, it will search the library catalog for you to see if we have your article in print--or let you request it via Interlibrary Loan. 
 

Looking for books we don't have in the library?  Try searching WORLDCAT (either for a title or by keywords on your topic).  Click on the button to request a book through ILL. 

Still can't find what you're looking for?  Please contact me!
