Is it scholarly?

A quick checklist:

1. Where did you find the source? Did you use a scholarly database? The Library catalog (UC Library Search)?

2. Who's responsible for the work? Is it published by a university press or another known scholarly publisher?  What are the author's credentials? Is the author a professor or other known academic or scholar?

3. Does it look like a scholarly work? Does it have footnotes and/or endnotes and/or a bibliography? What kinds of sources it it citing? Where did the author get their information? What research methodology are they using?
