If you find a great book or article on your topic, check the bibliography. “Chaining” means looking at what that author cited — it should help you find related materials. If you need help finding an article from citation, click here.

It can be daunting to go back and make up the bibliography from everything you’ve read for an assignment. Why not do it as you go? Software like Refworks or Zotero can help you with that…and librarians can help you get started with either.

Man! Brains mess up what you’re trying to think about sometimes

ain’t it the truth?

Next time this happens…ask a librarian.
