There are a couple of different approaches you can take:

  1. Search Our databases
    You can search our databases by the article title to see if it is listed. Even if the full text is not available in the database, it will still provide a citation. You'll just need to copy, then make sure it is formatted double spaced and with a hanging indent. Go to the A-Z Databases
  2. Google Scholar

    Google scholar provides citations for articles and some books from the search result list (currently MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard or Vancouver). To grab a citation click on the Cite link below a search result and select from the available citation styles. As with any resource that provides citations, always double check to make sure formatting is correct.
