Chasing Citations

Citation chasing is the practice of following references listed in a scholarly book or article. It's a good way to find sources that are closely related to your topic, if you have starting with at least one source that's already useful.

Process / tips:

  • Determine whether the publication you're seeking is a book or an article.
  • For books, search by book title in the library's Classic Catalog
  • For articles, search by journal title using periodical title search. (You could also try the article name in Catalog Plus, however this is not as reliable.) If the library has this journal, compare the date range held against the date your article was published.
  • If SCAD does not have the book or article you're seeking, request it via inter-library loan. We will ask another college or university to provide a copy.
