Finding more articles & books

One interesting thing about research is that it's a case of the more you have, the more you can get. For example, if you can find even one good article on your topic, take a look at the list of references at the end of the article. After all, if the article itself is helpful, then probably some of the articles the author used will be of interest too! To find those articles you can use the Journals Listing from our Find Articles page. Just take the name of the journal, the date and so on from the reference list and check for it in that journals listing.

Another excellent resource can be the bibliography often found at the end of a book. Like the article you find helpful, a good book will likely have a bibliography at the end that will list the books the author used which you may well want to look for in our library catalog.

Of course, if you ever have problems tracking down any of these things, do feel free to ask us for help!
