Can't find it at Morris?

Request items from around the world through Interlibrary Loan. Check and request books from I-Share first before requesting books through this service. 

Is It Peer-Reviewed?

Most articles in scholarly journals are peer-reviewed, except for editorials, commentaries, letters to the editor, or news items.

Visual clues can help you determine whether an article is probably peer-reviewed or not.

See this YouTube video or the two handouts below for clues to distinguishing between a magazine article and a scholarly article.

Find Books about Animal Training and Animal Training Careers

Use the Morris Library Catalog to find books and other resources. Search by broad topic and then limit by format type including electronic books (see the right hand-hand column of the search results screen). You may limit to SIUC only if you choose (this works for electronic books). You may also change the search type from relevance to newest. If you are unable to request an item from I-Share, ask me or Ask-A-Librarian about requesting it using a different interlibrary loan system. 

Start with broader topics, e.g., wildlfe and poaching
