Citation chaining is the process by which you use one good information source, such as an article relevant to your topic, and mine its list of References for additional useful resources. This is called backward chaining. You can locate those cited articles by inputting the citation information into Citation Linker, putting the exact title in LibrarySearch, or often you can do this directly within an article database.
You can also do forward chaining; this identifies those who have cited the article. This is simple to do in Google Scholar.
When you search Google Scholar on your personal computer, you can configure your settings so that UO Libraries resource links appear in your results. Then you can click the UO FindText to access a library item.
(TIP: If you're at a temporary computer and don't want to activate these settings, you can access Google Scholar via our Databases page (Library Home Page > Databases A-Z > G > Google Scholar).
To configure your Google Scholar Library Links, click on Settings. in the upper right of the search page.
Then select Library Links and search for "University of Oregon." Check the box in the search select and click "Save."
