Research Tip: Borrow It

Tip #47: Borrow It!

If we don't have access to a book or article you can borrow a copy from another library. Just search for the book in Williams WorldCat, and then choose "Request Item" to borrow it. Most articles can be delivered electronically within 24-hours!

Filtering for Peer-Reviewed Resources

Use filters to narrow your results to peer-reviewed resources:


In the library catalog, the "Peer-reviewed Journals" filter is located on the right-hand side of the search results list, under the "Availability" section (see image above). Individual records that are peer-reviewed are labelled in the results list by a purple eyeball and book icon (below image)


In a database the filter (in the image below from EBSCO the filter is called "Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals" but may be titled differently in each database) will be located in a menu on the side of the search results list.
