Q. How do I go about finding scholarly resources?


Here are step-by-step instructions for finding a scholarly article:

  1. Start at the Online Resources.
  2. Click on a subject area that matches the topic.
  3. Select one of the databases.
  4. Log in with library card number (On the back of student ID).
  5. Enter keywords.
  6. Check the box labeled peer-reviewed, which is sometimes under Advanced Search.
  7. These are considered scholarly articles.

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.

To find scholarly books or e-books, check the Online Catalog.

Scholarly books will: 

  • List an author's credentials or education.
  • Include in-text reference citations and a bibliography of sources.
