GASP 156D / HIST 173 (DePrano): Find a Known Item

Ancient Roman Art & Architecture


Strategies for Locating Known Items (article focus)

1.  Look for the title in Google Scholar especially if it is an article. In the results list, click on the title OR UC-eLinks / Get it at UC button under "More".

2.  Look for the title in UC Library Search, especially if it is a book.  Look for the Available Online link for items we do have or look for a call number if it is a book in our library. 

3. If an article, look for the journal title in the Journals@UCMerced link. See if the journal is available.  Is the date you need available?

4. You may be able to find the article in a major database related to the subject area of the article. Challenge: We do not always know what journals are indexed by a database.
