"Peer-review" is the editorial process that scholarly articles go through before they are published in a journal.  Since books go through a different editorial process before publication, they aren't peer reviewed. Textbooks can be good sources of general information, but would not be considered peer reviewed sources.

If you are specifically looking for peer reviewed or scholarly journal articles, you can search our subscribed library databases for your topic and limit the search to "peer reviewed" to return only peer reviewed results.
