Finding Citations for Journal Articles and Databases

Citations and abstracts are found in online databases. Citations provide bibliographic data that identifies the source of the information, i.e.. author, article title, journal title, page numbers, volume number and publication date. Abstracts are brief descriptions of the content of an article. Once you have a citation, you must locate the article or document which may be in print, online, or microform format.
