You can renew most library materials for an additional two weeks f they have not been placed on hold by another person, and you do not need to have them with you to do so. Simply tell a library staff member at the circulation desk that you would like renew your items.
In many classes, your instructor will specify that you must use peer reviewed materials. So, what does this mean? Scholarly peer review is when the author’s work is subjected to independent analysis by other experts in their particular field. Think of it as getting a paper graded. Before the journal publishes the article, they consult experts other than the author to make sure that the content is the best it can possibly be.
