An accurate reference, whether on a list of readings or references, will help you find that source of information.
Information on a reading list or list of references will follow the same general referencing format. This includes information about the author, date of publication, title, publisher and place of publication. Here are examples of different sources:
To look up a book chapter on the library catalogue, search for the title of the book, not the title of the chapter.
To find whether an article is available through the library, search for the title of the journal, not the title of the article.
Depending on the type of publication you will need to use different search engines to find it. This table will help you work out where to look.
