- Determine what kind of source it is. Is it a book chapter? A journal article?
- If it is a book, look in the catalog or WorldCat to see if we own it or if you need to Interlibrary Loan it.
- If it is an article, use the Journal List to search for the journal title to see which database it is in. If we don't own it, use Find It to request the title. If it's not in a database, use Interlibrary Loan to request the article.
