You’ve searched and searched. You consider yourself a good searcher, and you know some good Google tricks. You have discovered Google Scholar. Yes, you’ve looked at the library, and yes, you’ve looked in the databases. (Well, maybe.) BUT…there really doesn’t seem to be a lot on your particular subject. What now?
You’ve found a sufficient number of sources. BUT…in your opinion, they’re not all very high quality. For one thing, you’re a little hazy on the idea of peer-reviewed or scholarly articles. These articles might be peer-reviewed…they seem like they are, but you don’t know for sure. You think you could certainly get by with what you have. But is “getting by” really what you want to do?
Help is on the way!
Luckily, you know that the librarians at the OU-Tulsa Library can help you!
