Navigating UWG library resources and research

Find more from what I have

When you find one source that is helpful for your research, it often can lead to more useful sources. Strategies for finding more sources based on what you have include:

Using references

Browse the bibliography or references at the end of a relevant book or article entry in a reference work.


Using catalog records

If you find a relevant book in the catalog, click on the title to see the full record. Then click on relevant subjects or on the author's name to see more works by them.




Using Google Scholar's "Cited by" and "Related articles" links

Google Scholar's "Cited by" link will tell you some of the authors who have cited the work you are looking up. You then might look at those articles to see if they are on a similar topic. The "Related articles" link will offer suggestions of similar articles that you could explore. You can also click on the author's name for other works by them.
