Scholarly vs Popular Sources

Scholarly Checklist

Here is a quick checklist of criteria to help you determine if a resource is scholarly:

  • Always list authors and author's affiliations.
  • Technical, specialized vocabulary.
  • Reports on experiments, studies or literature reviews.
  • Graphs, tables, data.
  • Always includes footnotes or citations.

Library ID

You must have an up-to-date Library ID if you want to:

  • Check out books from the LCCC library.
  • Request library items through OhioLINK when not available at LCCC.
  • Use any research database from off-campus.

If you do not have a Library ID, or if your Library ID is not updated for the semester, visit the CIRCULATION desk or call (440)366-4026.

The front of the ID has a 14-digit number above the bar code that you will use when requesting materials through OhioLINK or using research databases from an off-campus location. An updated ID should have a sticker on the back for the current semester.
