The reference lists and bibliographies of books and journal articles that you find will help identify other valuable materials on your topic. Your next step is to determine whether KL owns that book or journal article.
e.g.: Suppose you find the following citation in the bibliography of a book or article you're reading:
Michael Ottolenghi, “Harry Truman’s Recognition of Israel,” The Historical Journal 47 no. 4 (2004): 963–88.
Check to see if KL owns this item by entering the article title in OneSearch, using quotation marks around it.
If Kresge Library does not have this article, you can order a copy through Interlibrary Loan.
