So with these criteria in mind, let's look at our first citation and identify the elements:
What else is included? It looks like there is another title, along with a bunch of numbers. This must be a journal article.
Our first citation is an article
by William B. Thompson entitled "Black Intellectuals, Intelligence
Testing in the 1930s and the Sociology of Knowledge" which was
published in the periodical Teachers College Record in 1984, volume or issue number 85, on pages 477-501.
See if you can figure out the other two on your own. We are going to try to locate the first article using library resources below.
Now that we know we are searching for an article in a periodical, we can begin. Working backward from a citation, start with the name of the periodical. In our example, the periodical title, or journal name is Teachers College Record. Go to the Hunter College Libraries home page and locate the Journal Title List link in the left hand navigation bar:
Enter the name of the journal or magazine in the search box:
If the journal in question is available, you will get results that look something like this:
What the above screen is telling us is the location of the journal Teachers College Record. It is very important to take note of the range of dates listed to ensure that the article you are looking for falls within the range available. Here is what we learn from this screen. Teachers College Record is available:
So what now?
Now, we explore the remaining two options - check the EJS to see if our date is included, and if not, then we look at the print holdings to see if we can lay hands on a physical copy. Clicking on the EJS link takes us here:
It means that the "back issues" or older issues of this particular journal are available, in print, at Hunter. "BOUND" means that the back issues have been bound together in a book-like format, for ease of shelving and preservation. You will find the bound periodicals on the 5th floor of the main library, arranged alphabetically by title. Looking at the dates available, it appears as though the 1984 issue should be here, since the record states v.42(1941)-v.102:no.4(2000:Apr) is available and 1984 falls in that range. You can now go to the shelves and find this bound volume, locate the appropriate issue and pages, and make photocopies.
