Even after our lengthy in-class discussions, a few of you have indicated a confusion on what scholarly articles are.
You are in luck. The SLU library has online imbedded videos that discuss . . .
To find these videos, sign in to your "My Saint Leo" page. Go to the "Library" link at the top of the page. Click on the green "How To" tab on the Cannon Memorial Library page. Look at the list of menu items--all hyperlinked--and click on the option listed as " 'Help' and 'How to' Videos online flash demonstration videos." There are some videos that will work when you are signed in off-campus through the Internet and others that will only work when you are signed in through your portal on-campus.
"Distinguishing Scholarly Journals from Other Periodicals" from the library of Cornell University:
"How Do I Find Scholarly Articles?" from the University of Dayton:
"How to Find Articles in Scholarly Journals" from the University of North Carolina:
"How to Find Scholarly Articles" by eHow writer Heather Walsh:
Remember, you can use this body of advice for “defining” a scholarly article, but the search engines at other university libraries will only work for the their students. You will need to use the SLU library databases to search and find YOUR own articles.
For a nifty tutorial on how to format your scholarly articles in MLA format, the style required for my courses, please see the short demo created by YouTube user "bjay3311" below:
I hope this helps to clarify.
Please visit me in person during my office hours if you have concerns that can't be handled elsewhere.
