HSD 610: Human & Social Dimensions in Science & Technology Colloquium: The Basics and More

Library and Internet resources for HSD topics.

Locating a Known Citation

The yellow "Get it @ ASU" links or other full-text links within our databases should take you to the article if we have it. But if it doesn't, it's a good idea to check further. There's a good chance that we might still have the article you need. There are two ways that you can do this:

Search the title of the article in Library One Search. If you put the title of the article in quotation marks into the search box it will be a little more specific, but that's not always necessary. Usually just a simple cut and paste will work.

Another method that will usually work is to search the title of the article in Google Scholar. Be sure to access it through the ASU Library website. That way the "Get it @ ASU" links will appear.

If that method doesn't work you can also use our Journal Title Lookup feature to lead you to the full text online if we have it or to see if we have it in print.

Finding Background Information

If you need to find background information on an unfamiliar topic or discipline, journal articles are usually not your best source. Instead consider some of the following options:

Search for a Library Research Guide on the discipline or topic. Many research guides contain links to online encyclopedias and handbooks in the field.

Use an e-reference collection like the Gale Virtual Reference Library or Sage Knowledge.

Books from our catalog are also a good place to start when looking for broader information.
