FYW: Disaster Literature: Finding an Identified Source when You Have a Citation

If It's a Book

Use the library catalog to see if we have the book.

If not, change the part of the search window that says "Furman Catalog" to "PASCAL Delivers" to see if any other academic libraries in SC have the book. If so, you can order it there and have it delivered by courier within a few days at no charge.

If it isn't available either of those places, your can check WorldCat to see if it's available for Interlibrary Loan. Entire books that are ordered via ILL have to be snail mailed and take days. If you order just a chapter, however, it can be sent electronically much more quickly. If you want to order a chapter, come see us at the Research Assistance Desk, chat with us, or email me or Brittany and we'll show you how.

If It's a Chapter in a Book

Use the process outlined in the box to the left, but be sure to search for the title of the BOOK, not the title of the ARTICLE. Then once you have the book, go directly to the chapter identified.

If It's a Journal Article

There are several methods for this.

  1. Enter the title of the ARTICLE in an appropriate database and then use the purple FUlltext button to locate the text. The EBSCO Article search from the home page is a good starting point for this.
  2. Enter the title of the JOURNAL (not the title of the article) in our EJOURNALS search from the home page. If we have full-text access to the journal, you can either enter the title of the article in the box within the journal record or you can browse by date/issue for it.
  3. Google the article title. If it tries to make you pay for the article, try the steps above and/or contact us.
