Citation Searching

To locate and retrieve articles or books that are cited in a bibliography or Works Cited page, use Library OneSearch or the Library Catalog to determine if Kresge Library has access to the item. For example, to find the article:

Auerbach, S. (2010). Beyond coffee with the principal: Toward leadership for authentic school-family partnerships. Journal of School Leadership 20(6), 728-757.

The most direct ways to search are by:

  1. Title in Library OneSearch. Use the article title - "Beyond coffee with the principal: Toward leadership for authentic school-family partnerships" - not the title of the journal (Journal of School Leadership).
  2. Journal Title in the Library Catalog.  Use the title of the journal - Journal of School Leadership  - NOT the title of the article.
The results of both searches indicate that the University Library has access to this article online.
