Lynne,
 
Ovid allows you to search for each part of a citation:  volume (VO), issue
(IP), beginning page (PG), and year of publication (YR).  The three examples
you give can be searched in MEDLINE by entering these search strategies at
the Ovid subject prompt:
 
91.vo. and 3.ip. and 38.pg. and 95.yr.
27.vo. and 68.pg. and 95.yr.
27.vo. and 42.pg. and 95.yr.
