Where to Search for Sources

Using the Library for Scholarly Sources

The Heartland Library (or any college library) will likely be your best resource when searching for Scholarly Sources (Peer-Reviewed sources from Academic Journals).

Advantages: In general, Heartland Library offers you access to academic sources that won’t be publicly available on the open internet.

Disadvantages: Heartland Library will offer fewer sources than Google.  You might not be able to find sources on very specific topics, particularly topics that are very recent or that receive little attention among academic writers.
