A book is a longer publication focused on one aspect of a topic. The introduction to a scholarly book usually offers an overview and is an excellent place to start your research. Books can be primary, secondary, or tertiary sources. Due to their length, books take longer to publish than articles. Scholarly books go through the same peer-review process as articles. The publisher will be a clue as to whether the book is scholarly, for specialists, or for general readers. Our library has books in print, online, downloadable, and even audiobook formats.
