Internet Search Tips

  • Conferences are particularly complex bibliographically, so you may need to apply the same tricks as for page titles: drop parts, don’t fixate on the numbers, know that the authors or ISBN or ordering of title:subtitle can differ between sources, etc.
  • Another approach is to look up the listing for a journal issue, and find the paper by hand; sometimes papers are listed in the journal issue’s online Table of Contents, but just don’t appear in search engines.
  • In particularly insidious cases, a paper may be digitized & available - but lumped in with another paper due to error, or only as part of a catch-all file which contains the last 20 miscellaneous pages of an issue.
  • I broke my rule of thumb to host the 2 books (my mistake), which leaves only the 1 paper, which I think was a fluke.
