  • Use “Exact Phrase” when you want to keep words together.
  • Interesting that Peter Pfau is not mentioned at all
  • You can pick up snippets of information or decide if you need to look at the entire book. We have many of these titles in the library.
  • 4 page article with all the graphic info you need. Not available to read online so you must check the catalogue to see if a print copy available and if not, order it in.
  • Beware!! 3 pages have been dropped.
  • On average takes 2 weeks for a request to come through. You’ll get an e-mail when it arrives.
  • Not finding enough in the Avery? Go to Proquest home and search across databases.
  • Some citations can be read online. Others will need to be requested through TUGdoc or RACER
