I need to find a book in my college library. The books don't seem to be in alphabetical order. How do I find it?
Most college or academic libraries will use two systems called Library of Congress or the Dewey Decimal system. There are a few methods for finding the book. The easiest is to ask a librarian for help. Another is to go to your library's website and find the library's catalog. Type in the book and the book will pop up with the call number next to it. Call numbers tell you where to find the book. You can follow your library's signs to help you match the call numbers or ask a librarian for help.
I need to find an article titled 'Research in the Sciences'. I don't have the author's name and I need it to cite my research. I do have the year it was published and the journal name. How can I find the author?
You can find the author's name a variety of ways. One is to go to your library's database and type in the article name. Often times the article will pop up with the journal information and the author's name. Another way is to search your library's database for the journal title and then you can browse the specific journal and the year it was published for the article. That will include the author's name. If you are having trouble with these methods, you can always ask a librarian for help.
