Which Books are Scholarly?

To identify scholarly books, check for:

  • Publisher: college, university or other research institution (Oxford, Yale, etc.)
  • Authors/editors: scholars, professors, curators, etc.
  • Extensive bibliographies/reference lists

Museum exhibition catalogs are an especially helpful scholarly source.

  • They compile exemplary artworks on a shared theme or topic
  • May include scholarly essays and high quality printed images
  • Look for books published by major museums: (Ex. Smithsonian Institution, Met Museum, etc.)
  • TIP: add the keyword "exhibitions" to your library search.

Book Search Tips

  • Experiment with various keywords (even small changes make a difference)
  • Check the location, call number, and status before heading to the shelf (see example below)
  • Books are organized by subject, so take time to browse the shelves. You might find something useful you didn't see in the catalog.
  • Obtain books from other SCAD locations or place a hold with the request service. Learn how here!
