Honors Librarian Office Hours

I don't plan to be on-campus during Fall 2020 semester, but am still available for virtual appointments. Just make a request and we'll figure out a meeting platform that works for you.

Finding and Evaluating Information

Many assignments will ask you to find "scholarly articles," but what does that mean?

Scholarly articles are often (but not always!) peer-reviewed. You've probably heard the term before, but this video gives a brief but thorough description of what it means.

The best way to make sure you're finding scholarly or peer-reviewed articles is by using a library database. This video will show you how.
