Writing a paper?

Professors require that college level research projects are supported by authoritative, scholarly sources. How do you vet a source for scholarship? Ask yourself...

... who created this document? Who is the author? Is the author a credentialed expert on the subject? 

... who is the publisher? Is the publishing company a recognized academic publisher?  Is the journal "peer reviewed," meaning other experts have evaluated the article before publishing? 

The following databases and websites are available linked from here and from the Electronic Resources section found on the library home page. Print resources are available in the PHC on-campus collection or by mail to the distance learning members of our community. You may check the location and the availability of an item in our collection through the online catalog, accessible from the library home page.

Research Tips

  • Citation help needed? Try OWL (Online Writing Lab) for Chicago/TurabianMLA, and APA styling formats. 
  • Search by subject: Once you have located one item in the catalog, you can click on the search term within the record to find other items on the same or similar subjects. Once you have located a helpful source, additional potential sources may be found in the item's bibliography.
  • Can't find what you need in the PHC collection? If you are unable to locate an item in the PHC collection, you may request resources through Interlibrary loan. ILL requests may be made directly in the library catalog.
  • Research assistance is available in the library or by email at askalibrarian@phc.edu
