Step-by-Step Examples


Wants to find an academic periodical

Bob found a citation in a GALILEO database to an article that looks perfect for his paper. It wasn't available in full-text, so he goes to GIL to find out if the library has the article in print. The article is:

Rowe, M.W. (1999). The objectivity of aesthetic judgements. The British Journal of Aesthetics 39 (1); 40-52.

Bob does this search:

Home Page > Exact Search
Search for: British journal of aesthetics
Search in: Journal Title

The record that is displayed indicates:

Call Number BH1 .B75
Volumes Owned: 1975- v.15-

Recent Issues: v. 41, no. 1 (2001 Jan.)
v. 40, no. 4 (2000 Oct.)
v. 40, no. 3 (2000 July)
v. 40, no. 2 (2000 Apr.)
v. 40, no. 1 (2000 Jan.)

Bob sees that there is an open entry, and the volume he needs is not on the current shelves. He goes to the stacks to locate the 1999 volume at the call number indicated.
