ETHN 494: Native American Women and Indigenous Feminisms

This guide is designed to help you construct a biographical sketch of an Indigenous historical figure.

Citing Your Sources

Don't forget to cite your sources!

Many databases offer auto-generated citations of the information in the citation style of your choice. Look for citation icons and then choose the output style (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.) that you prefer. If there is no citation feature available, you will need to generate the citations manually using a print or electronic citation guide.

Finding the full text

Sometimes, when using a database, you find a citation to a great article, but it doesn't include the full text. Here's what to do to get the article:

  • Search for the title of the journal (not the article title) on Copley Library's website at: https://www.sandiego.edu/library/find/#journals
  • In the search results, note the date ranges of Copley's subscriptions, the links to electronic access of the journal, and/or the call number of the print copies
  • Use that information to retrieve the full text of the article; if there is no access to the full text, request the article via Interlibrary Loan
