This well-done interactive tutorial by UC Berkeley librarians clearly explains the nature and benefits of scholarly publications. It provides a detailed guide for examining scholarly articles, and includes simple assessments for ascertaining the quality of a resource. It also compares searching databases, "free" Internet search engines, and Google Scholar.
