Finding Full-Text for a Known Citation

How would you find the full text for the following citation?  This happens most frequently when you look in the footnotes or bibliography of an article--this is a great way to find primary sources on your topic as well.

Zhang, Hua, et al. " The geography of Zambia's customary land: Assessing the prospects for smallholder development."  Land Use Policy, 55  (September 2016): 49-60.

  1. Go to the library catalog search page.
  2. From the search box, select Journal Title from the drop down menu
  3. Type your journal title (Land Use Policy) in the box. Do not type your article title in the box.
  4. If WSU owns your journal, see if we have the year, volume, and issue number you need. Note: it might be in electronic form or paper form.
  5. If WSU doesn’t have the journal you want or doesn’t have the year/volume/issue you need, use Interlibrary Loan.

Is there software to help me generate citations?
