University libraries are organized differently than public libraries. In a university library browsing will not be the best way for you to find books on your topic. Example: You are looking for a book on Modernism. You will find books in N (Fine Art), NK (Decorative Arts), NA (Architecture), etc. Within each of those there are subclasses of information. It's complex! It is best to search the library catalog and write down the call number and title of the books that you think best meet your needs.
"Library Search" will search almost all of the library's databases. This will search Jstor, so no need to search that seperately.
This video covers how to use the advanced feature of Library Search and how to narrow the number of search results.
The first part of this video explains scholalry sources. About halfway through there will be a review of the parts that make up a scholarly article, making it easier to identify one when searching the library databases
