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


To find books or e-books, search the Book Catalog.

To find a scholarly article:

  1. Go to the Online Resources.
  2. Choose a subject category that matches your topic.
  3. Choose a database.
    Note: Look for ProQuest or EBSCO, which have an option to limit your search to scholarly articles.
  4. Log in with your Library Card number (from the back of your Baker College student ID).
  5. Enter your keywords.
  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.
