1. Look for books in the usual way, but look for books produced by University Presses. The screenshot at the right shows a results list from a search in the Library Catalog . Look for the words "university" and "press".
Unfortunately, it is hard to limit your search to just university presses.
See the AAUP website for a list of American University Presses.
2. You can perform a keyword search in the Library Catalog in the format:
subject term university press
Examine the results carefully, as there will be some non university press materials mixed in the results as well as journal titles. This is not a very thorough method of searching the library catalog.
|3. Look for books from http://www.doabooks.org/ (these are all free ebooks). The website's documentation states that they are peer reviewed books.|
If you have an explicit requirement to use only peer reviewed books, that is an unreasonable requirement - please tell me the name of the instructor (and the course) and we will contact that instructor to see if the requirement can be changed.
