Finding Scholarly Information
For interpretation, historical background, and implementation effects of a policy, you need to find secondary sources of information. The best analysis usually comes from materials written by scholars, or experts, and published either through a editorial review process, such as books published by academic publishers, or a peer-review process, used by many scholarly journals.
Fogler Library's catalog is the place to look for books, both print and electronic. To have a book sent to another library location, click on the Request button on the top of the page. You will be asked for your name and barcode (on the back of your MaineCard). Access a basic tutorial here.
When we don't have access to books or articles you need through the Request service or Article Linker/LINK to Full Text, you can use Interlibrary Loan. Access a tutorial here to learn how to create an account, and another here to learn how to place a request.
