Wait, what’s a citation?
A citation is the information about a scholarly resource: author’s name, title, source (journal or book or whatever), page numbers, year. It’s the information you include in the bibliography when you write a paper, and it’s the information a GALILEO database will give you when you do a search.
To be able to find the resource when you have a citation, the most important part is the source. Usually it’s a journal title, but sometimes we hear from students who get confused because they are searching for a journal when the ‘article’ they want is actually a book chapter, or even an entire book. Look closely at the description of the source in the citation.
Getting to the article:
If you are already in a GALILEO Database:
- There may be a direct link to a pdf or an html page of the article.
- Look for the Find It @ UGA button next to the citation. Click it and see if a link appears offering full-text of the article.
If you aren’t in GALILEO, or the previous steps don’t work:
