Citation Verification Strategies and Resources

Resources Used When Verifying Citations

The resource you select to verify a reference depends upon:

  • the type of reference (article, book, etc.)
  • the subject of the reference (medicine, nursing, psychology, etc.)
  • the date of the reference

All resources listed in this guide are available online unless otherwise noted. Access to these online resources, unless otherwise indicated, is available through the Mulford Library web page.

If you have any questions about these resources and their uses, or if you are having trouble verifying a citation, don't hesitate to contact Mulford Reference Assistance.

Articles in Journals

The resources listed in this section are the most commonly used databases on campus. Databases covering non-health science disciplines (education, business, history, etc.) are available through OhioLINK.
