  • 7. Get the Articles • Email, Folder, Export, Permalink, Bookmark, Print • No full-text? Look for this: • Borrow it from another library? Look for this: “Fill out an ILL form for this article”
  • 8. Scholarly vs. Popular SCHOLARLY, PEER-REVIEWED, JURIED • Generally have a serious look. • Often contain pictures, graphs, and charts. • Written by “experts” in particular fields (subject disciplines).
  • 9. More Scholarly • Report on original research or experimentation. • Often reviewed (refereed) by author’s peers before publication. • Intended audience is other scholars (researchers, professors, students) and “experts” familiar with the language of the discipline.
  • 10. Even More Scholarly • Credit given to sources used (i.e., citations.) • In-text citations. • Bibliography or reference list. • Footnotes or endnotes. • Published by academic presses or endorsed by professional associations.
  • 11. Popular, or “Fluff” as we call it. • Available in many formats. • Often attractive in appearance. • Often contain many photographs and other eye-catching graphics.
  • 12. More “Fluff” • Generally written by professional writers or journalists. • Generally not written by scholarly “experts” in any one field. • Intended audience is the general public.
  • 13. Final “Fluff” • Language used is simple and entertaining. • Rarely credit their sources (i.e., no citations). • Published by commercial presses. • Contain advertisements. • Can be purchased at newsstands, grocery stores, and large bookstores.
