The two videos below can help clear up this conundrum! The first video, from McMaster University Library, offers a useful side-by-side comparison of scholarly and popular sources. In some courses, your instructor may ask you to locate peer-reviewed articles. For a brief description, check out "Peer Review in 3 Minutes" from North Carolina State University. If you have additional questions, ask a librarian at any of your BCC campus libraries - you can contact us in person, as well as by phone, email or chat!
