Research Process

Track Useful Sources as You Find Them

  • Send an article's citation information to your account with a citation management tool like EndNote.
  • Download and save or print articles as you find them.
  • Most databases have ways to send a list of articles to your email.
  • Write down information about your sources as you find them. Include the article title, the author, and information about the journal: title, year of publication, and volume/issue numbers.
  • Carefully organize your bookmarks with meaningful titles. If you are trying to bookmark an article from the library's page, put the following URL string in front so that the library's proxy address will be activated: http://libproxy.umflint.edu:2048/login?url=
