WRTG 105 Excellent Sheep (Murphy): Research Guide

Finding Articles and Books on your topic

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!  Just go to the ILL page: https://illiad.lib.rochester.edu/

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

Education Data

Picking your topic IS research!

Tracking a Scholarly Conversation with Scholar.google.com

Did you know that if you have a citation to a book or article, you can use http://scholar.google.com to see which scholars have cited that work? (1) Find your article in Google Scholar, (2) click the "cited by..." link underneath your chosen article. 

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.
