To find books, you are going to use the library's catalog, below.

The Lima Campus Library (and a great many academic libraries) is organized by a system known as 'Library of Congress'. That means that books or grouped together by subject rather than author, letting you know where you can go to browse and potentially find some interesting books on the topic.

So what is a peer-reviewed article? Peer-review is a process in which articles written by experts in a field of study are reviewed and critiqued by experts in that field before they are published. This process assures any reader of the quality of research. Below are the differences between peer-reviewed articles, and articles that are not peer-reviewed:

Articles that ARE Peer-Reviewed:

  • Typically longer than 3 pages
  • Written by an expert researcher or researchers 
  • Contain a list of references
  • Use complex language (i.e. methodology)
  • Are usually more of interest to other experts than to the general public

Articles that ARE NOT Peer-Reviewed:

  • News articles (i.e. Associated Press, Reuters)
  • Magazine articles (i.e. People, Time)
  • Trade or Professional publications (focusing more on working in a field than research)

There are some great tips and tools that you can use to make sure you’re getting peer-reviewed results:

  • Use the “Scholarly/Peer-Reviewed” limiter in a database
  • Examine the publishing journal’s official website
  • Ulrichsweb, a database with information about periodicals indicates if an item is peer-reviewed
    • Never used Ulrichsweb before? Here's a Video Tutorial to show you how to use it!
  • When in doubt, ask a librarian or your instructor


Below are links to CSE guides that can help you learn more about this citation style. Please note that some courses, such as EEOB 4220, will require a slightly different citation style. Be sure to follow the guidelines for your specific course.
