Finding Journal Articles about Aspects of the Virtual Child

Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals vs. Non-Scholarly Periodicals

Scholarly Periodicals publish articles that are useful for serious scholastic research; often, instructors will insist that students use only scholastic periodicals for their research work.

Scholarly periodicals are also referred to as Academic Journals, Peer Reviewed, or Refereed Journals. "Refereed" or "Peer Reviewed" mean that not only is the journal edited, but that every article included in the journal is reviewed by authorities in the subject field of the journal, to decide whether or not the article should be published.

Interlibrary Loan

If you need a book  or an article that the Jackson State Community College Library doesn't own, please contact Vanessa Jones at 731-424-3520 ext. 50325 or by email at vjones13@jscc.eduProvide her with the author, title, date of publication and publisher. for a book.  For an article in a journal or magazine, provide her the name of the journal or magazine, the date of the journal or magazine, the title of the article and the pages on which the article appears.

The Library will then ask another library to loan us the book or send a scanned copy of the article..  We use the Online College Library Center to connect us to most academic libraries in the country.

It takes about 2 weeks for a book to be sent here from another library and about a week for a copy of an article.
