Handout on Scholarly vs. Reliable sources

This handout lists the traits of scholarly and reliable sources. Your source does not have to be scholarly but it definitely needs to be reliable/credible.

Books, articles and films

EBSCO's Academic Search Complete -- Journal and magazine articles. Click in the box "full text" box.

CQ Researcher -- In-depth reports on social and political topics.

Proquest -- Journal and magazine articles. Click in the "full text" box.

Films on Demand -- Academic streaming videos.

Books! Search Primo -- be sure to narrow to "books" on the left side. Don't see "books"? That means there are none with the words you typed in. Try different words.
