Consult the wise old - for a variety of common citation styles -- but NOT for CSE (Council of Science Editors)!! For simple CSE questions, try the Writing Center of the University of Wisconsin's guide
OWL - The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University - to get basic structural information for creating a citation list or bibliography using a particular citation style such as APA, MLA, or Turabian.
To look for a specific periodical whose title you know (i.e. Time, or Scientific American) , click on the JOURNALS By Title link on the Library home page. A search for the journal Nature, for example, indicates what years (issues) are owned by Adams Library and in what format: print or online.
Use this technique when you are NOT in a database with periodical references. The database should give you a "Check the RIC Library" link to determine access to the publication.
