SCHOLARLY OR NOT?
Scholarly and peer reviewed are your "academic" articles. These are the ones that deal directly with research, history, or theory. Most likely, your professor wants you to use these types of articles. These types of articles are written by scholars, experts in the field often associated with a university or an organization. Peer reviewed articles must also be approved by a group of scholars before being published to ensure that the research presented is factual and relevant. Not everyone can get peer reviewed.
Popular magazine articles are usually ones that you read for entertainment. These are usually the type of publications that you find at the grocery store checkout. Chances are if there's a celebrity on the cover, it's a popular magazine.
Databases with green or partially green icons offer some level of free, full-text articles. In most cases, you must be affiliated with A-State to view the article or on the A-State campus. Some database offer a "pay-per-view" service where you can buy an article not available for free and have immediate access. If you do not need immediate access to the article, you may also request it through Interlibrary Loan for free. Articles requested through Interlibrary Loan can take 2-5 business days to come in, depending on the lending library. You can also digital scans from our physical collection through Document Delivery.

BOOKS IN THE DEAN B. ELLIS LIBRARY
All books in the library are arranged by subject using the Library of Congress classification system for call numbers and subject headings. The main call number for clinical laboratory sciences begins with either "Q" or "R". The basic breakdown is as follows:
The numbers that follow these beginning letters relate to the narrower scope of the item, for example: RB38.25 .H83 2010, A Concise Review of Clinical Laboratory Science, is a general book on medical laboratory technology while the call number RB145 .C26 2009, Clinical Hematology Atlas, is much more specific within the subject.
Occasionally a totally different call number will appear. This means the item is about more than clinical laboratory sciences and higher importance was given to the other subject when the call number was assigned. For example, Legal Guidelines for the Clinical Laboratory has a call number of KF3826.L3 L43 because it has to do more with law than Clinical Laboratory Sciences - but that doesn't mean it's not a great book for you to use!
