There are two library databases that are great at helping you do this:

Scopus and

Web of Science   

Both of these indexes work a little bit differently, and both include a different set of journals that they index (there is overlap between them, but there is unique content in both - so to do a complete citation search, you really need to check both).

In Web of Science, change Basic Search to Cited Reference Search and follow the database help guidelines.

In Scopus, view the help page on Author Details.

Google Scholar, a free resource, is also very helpful in looking for citations, especially if an author has created a Google Scholar Citations profile.
