Books and journal articles are the most common way to access scholarly research in your field, but each has advantages and disadvantages. Books take longer to research, write, and publish, so the information is not as current as in journal articles, which are shorter and slightly faster to publish. However, because they are longer and took more time to produce, books offer more thorough coverage of a topic, draw on a wider range of preexisting scholarship, and often excel in placing an argument in broader thematic and disciplinary context.
Consider a scholarly book in your own research, and look for the following:
1 Limit to a particular type of information source before searching or search Everything.
2. Change the drop-down menu to Stetson if you you want to limit to items accessible through our library.
