Welcome to your source pulling training! The seven videos on this page cover how to find the main source types you'll be working with, some general source pulling strategies, library policies and procedures you'll need to know, and where to go for help and additional information. You can always come back and refer to the videos, but you'll also find links to the slides, a quick reference guide, and an FAQ below. You can also use the navigation bar on the left to find more details on all those things, including information on sources not covered in the videos and links to the most useful databases. And if you've got questions or need help finding a specific source, you can always email email@example.com for help!
Can you locate a format-preserving version of Shirin Sinnar, The Lost Story of Iqbal, 105 Geo. L.J. 379 (2017)? What's the full name of the journal?
How about Jacob Goldin et al., Retirement Contribution Rate Nudges and Plan Participation: Evidence from a Field Experiment, 107 Am. Econ. Rev. 456 (2017)? What's the full name of the journal?
Does any campus library own a print copy of Stephen J. Pitti, The Devil in Silicon Valley: Northern California, Race, and Mexican Americans (2003)? Are any print copies available to be checked out? Is there a format-preserving e-book version that you can use?
Say you get an incomplete citation that just reads "Hart & Wechsler's 7th ed." Can you figure out what this probably refers to? Does the library have a copy you can use, either in print or as an e-book?
Try finding a format-preserving version of this opinion: Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875).
How about this one: State Conservation Dep't v. Seaman, 240 N.W.2d 206 (Mich. 1976). What court is it in? Is the citation to the correct reporter? If needed, does the library have the reporter in print or will you need to request an ILL? (Check the link below for a list of the reporters we have in print.)
How about this one: Courtesy Temp. Serv., Inc. v. Camacho, 222 Cal. App. 3d 1278 (Ct. App. 1990). What court is it in? Is the citation to the correct reporter? If needed, do we have the reporter in print or will you need to request an ILL?
