Cited Reference Searching

You can use a work's bibliography to "go back in time" and find citations to earlier works that may be relevant to your research.

You can also use tools like Google Scholar to "go forwards in time" and find later works that have cited a given publication.

In Google Scholar, look for where it says "Cited by" under the original citation. In JSTOR, look in the right hand column, first where it says "X items citing this item" in the JSTOR database. Below that, you will find a link to take you to Google Scholar's cited reference search for that article.

This kind of cited reference search is rarely complete or exact; there are a lot of variations in ways that people cite a given work, and the fact that Google says "Cited by X" can be read as "cited by at least X" other sources.

  • Middle English Dictionary
    This electronic version of the MED preserves all the details of the print MED (available in Tutt Library ), but goes far beyond this, by converting its contents into an enormous database, searchable in ways impossible within any print dictionary.

Find Books

TIGER, the CC Library Catalog

TIGER will tell you what we own (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.) or subscribe to (journals, databases, etc.) at Colorado College. It will not help you find articles in journals.

The Prospector Catalog will help you find books and other items in other Colorado libraries which you can request and have sent to Tutt Library for you to use.

WorldCat can help you find books in libraries almost anywhere and request them via interlibrary loan.

Please ask a librarian if you need help with TIGER, Prospector, or WorldCat.
