What next, dude?

So you have the citations, but where are the articles?

For those articles not in full text, you need to search the library catalog to see if your library owns a copy of that magazine or journal.

For example, if you were looking for this article:

"Gossip on the web: Truth, lies and cyberspace."
The Economist 351.8116 (April 24, 1999): 84.

You would search the library catalog for the title of the periodical (Economist), not the title of the article ("Gossip on the web: truth, lies and cyberspace").

Sometimes, you need more information beyond what you find in printed publications.  The Internet may be a good place to look.  So let's talk about using your search skills to get relevant information from the Internet.
