How to Use Research Library

Get the basics, grab citations and help.

Get Scholarly & Peer Reviewed Journals

TipYou probably won't have to use this option for all of your research projects, but if your instructor requires that you use academic, scholarly or peer reviewed journals, this is the easiest way to get them:

  1. Under the search box, select Peer reviewed and perform your search.
  2. You can limit after your search as well, under Narrow Results.


Save Time on the Result List

Once you've done a search you can save time by using options on the right side of the screen.

Using any of the options will potentially help you focus and save time, but these are generally your best bets:

  • Peer Reviewed
    If your instructor wants you to use peer reviewed articles, selecting this box is a super easy way to get them. 
  • Source Type
    You can easily narrow down to academic or scholarly resources if your instructor requires it by selecting Scholarly Journals. 
  • Subject
    Save a lot of time by selecting a subject. This will eliminate articles that just mention your topic, but are not mainly about your topic.
  • Get Help With Your Research
