Citation help

The library has some handy links for getting help on citations!

In addition…Did you know that with the click of a button you can create article citations in many of the library’s databases?

Once you open an article in a library database, look for a citation button at the top or side of the page. Citation tools are most often located next to Email and Print icons.

You can create article citations in all of the library’s ProQuest databases (including ABI/INFORM Trade & Industry, Consumer Health Database, Criminal Justice Periodicals, Nursing & Allied Health Source, ProQuest Research Library, and U.S. Newsstream) by clicking on the “Cite this” link (illustrated below).

Similarly, in Academic Search Complete, Business Source Premier or Education Source, you can create an article citation by clicking on the “Cite” button located under “Tools” on the right hand side of the page.

Cite this in Academic Search Premier

In some databases (like Granger’s World of Poetry, Poetry and Short Story Criticism, and BigChalk’s eLibrary), citations are automatically provided at the end of the article. In others databases, like ERIC and Artstor, you need to sign in or select images and documents in order to access citation tools. CultureGrams and World Conflicts Today make citations available through the “Additional Citation Information” link at the bottom of the page.

If you have any questions about creating article citations, please ask the reference librarian!

A Cautionary Note: While the citation creation features in our databases should adhere to the latest APA and MLA citation manual standards, we recommend that you examine your citations carefully for errors or omitted information. It’s your responsibility to make sure your citations are correct!

How can I find full-text articles?

The best place to find thousands of full-text articles is in the library’s databases.  You can search multiple databases simultaneously by entering a title, author, subject, or keyword using the Articles drop-down on the library’s homepage:

Alternatively, you can search specific databases by mousing over the Search & Find tab, clicking on All Sources or Databases listed by Subject, and selecting a database from the list. Many of the library’s databases allow you to limit your search results to full-text. Look for a box that you can check on the search page.

If you find an article that’s not available full-text look for a ‘Check for Full-Text’ link, to see if we have a print copy of the article in the GHC library or an electronic copy in another GHC Library database. Not all the databases have the same information, so your article might be in one of the others!

The link could look like one of these:

check_full_text_3
check_full_text_2
check_for_full_text

If no copies are found, please ask the reference librarian to order the article for you through our Inter-Library Loan process.
