Google Scholar ( can be an efficient way to get a more complete citation of a work and, sometimes, to get a link to it, particularly for more recent works.  Searching your title and using the "Cite" link shows:

Banks, James A. "The canon debate, knowledge construction, and multicultural education." Educational Researcher 22.5 (1993): 4-14.

Conveniently, when you are searching from the library IP address, it includes a link to the library database where you can access the full-text article:





You can also search the title phrase in major databases related to your subject or in bibliographies for your subject. Whenever possible, it is a great time saver to make note of the full citation when your first see it (in an assignment, in your textbook, in another article or book, etc.). You can save the information in a personal research bibliography using EasyBib, RefWorks (both available on the library website) or your own citation management software.

If you find that the item is a book or DVD, check our catalog to see if it's in the library.  If it's a journal article, use the Journal Title search tool to see if we have that journal in print or in a database. If it isn't here, you can then request it via ILLiad interlibrary loan.
