Q. I have found a lot of articles by searching the databases, but I want to find more.

Answer

One way to extend your search is to mine the lists of references at the end of articles or in books. This allows you to build upon the authors' research.

If you find a citation to an article in a list of references, there are two ways you can check to see if the CSULB library has the article:

1) Type the title of the article, in quotation marks, in the Big Yellow Box on the Library Home Page. If the Library has an electronic copy of the article, this will usually lead you to it.

2) If you don't find it that way,  click on Locate Specific Journals by Title from the Library Home Page. Then enter the name of the journal, not the title of the article, in the search box. This will show you if we subscribe and, if so, what database the journal is in, or if it's a print-only journal. If it is online, click on the relevant database and search that journal for the article title.
