English 113 - DeNotto: Citation Identification and Tracking

Citation tracking (James)

With a partner, determine what type of resource each citation is (book, article, ?) then see if we have access to the resource via the Library's PRIMO. If we do not have access, try to figure out what you might do!

Citation Tracking (Lunderberg)

Citation tracking is a great research strategy to use from time to time.  Once you find one source, check its citations/bibliography/notes and the like, to see if there are other sources that might be helpful for you to track down. 


However, it is helpful if you can identify what type of source something is via its citation (for example, being able to differentiate between a book citation and a journal article citation.


Let's try it out with some of these samples. See if you can locate these sources via the Van Wylen Library:

Gelb, Joyce, and Marian Lief Palley. Women of Japan and Korea : Continuity and Change. Temple University Press, 1994.

Yoshimi, Y. (2001). Comfort women: Sexual slavery in the Japanese military during World War II. Columbia University Press, New York.

If we can't find it, what do we do? What's the next step? Do we give up?
