3.   LIBRARY ONLINE GUIDES
A.  NEW GUIDE FOR IDENTIFYING CITING REFERENCES
Who is citing your work?    Ever wondered who has cited your papers and other scholarly works in their own research articles? Cynthia Crosser has created a guide to identifying citing references using five major tools: Web of Science, JSTOR, SciFinder Scholar, MathSciNet, and Google Scholar. It may be found at www.library.umaine.edu/general/cited_your_article.htm. Please contact Cynthia Crosser (Reference, 581-3612) or Jim Bird (Science & Engineering, 581-1697) if you have questions about citation searching.
