A citation is a crucial part of finding articles in databases and requesting them through interlibrary loan. Here is a citation written in APA Style:
Konuspayeva, G., Konuspayeva, G., Faye, B., Camier, B., Gaucheron, F., Faye, B., . . . Gaucheron, F. (2014). Some parameters to process camel milk into cheese. Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture, 26(4), 354-358. doi:10.9755/ejfa.v26i4.17277
It's important to record citations by writing them out, printing them, or saving them for two reasons: (1) they help you locate the full-text of the article and (2) you will need the citation when it comes time to cite your research in a bibliography.
UMD librarians will be able to assist you more readily if you can provide them with a citation. At minimum, the author's name and some keywords will go a long way to track down items.
