Asian M60W / Religion M60W: Introduction to Buddhism

Access to Print Resources (as of 3/20/20)


As part of UCLA's transition to remote instruction, and the Library's necessary decision to close all Library locations, access to print resources and special collections is not available. Please take advantage of electronic resources such as ebooks and article databases. The UCLA community can connect to these online resources off-campus via the VPN or proxy server. Interlibrary loan is still available for electronic journal articles; however, ebooks cannot be borrowed on interlibrary loan. You can also temporarily access digitized print books via HathiTrust, although you cannot download or print these books--only do screenshots.

The library is also extending access to our print collection beyond what's available in HathiTrust through the Pilot Emergency Temporary Digititzation on Request Service (PETDOR). Please review the PETDOR FAQ for guidance on using this service. 

For help with any of our resources, please schedule an appointment with a librarian (audio/video Zoom appointments available), contact your subject librarian directly, or use our 24/7 chat service.

Library Session Exercise

Instructions: With a partner, look at each of the two articles linked to below. On a sheet of paper, answer the following questions:

1. Which source is scholarly, and which is popular?

2. What kind of authority does each author have? In other words, what experience, education, credentials, etc. does the author have that helps you decide whether they know what they're talking about?

3. What kind of audience do you think this source is written for? Who is meant to read it?
