Q. Can you please tell me how to find the following: scholarly books and articles.


To find books/e-books, start at the Library website and click on Books/Ebooks to search the Book Catalog.

To find a scholarly article:

  1. First, go to the Online Resources.
  2. Choose a subject category that matches your topic.
  3. Choose a database.
    Note: Look for ProQuest, Infotrac, or EBSCO in the name of the database--all of these databases have an option to limit your search to scholarly articles.
  4. Log in with your Library Card # (from the back of your Baker College student ID).
  5. Enter your keyword(s) in the search box(es).
  6. Find the check box labeled peer-reviewed, which sometimes is under Advanced search.
  7. All the articles you find this way will be considered scholarly.

IMPORTANT: Stay away from Editorials, Letters to the Editor, Book Reviews and similar items. THESE ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE SOURCES FOR A RESEARCH PAPER, EVEN IF THEY ARE FROM A SCHOLARLY JOURNAL.
