** Worth Noting **

Some students mention that they can't find enough books on their topic.

  • If you've found one book in our physical collection, the others in the area should be on the same or similar topic.
  • If you've found one book in our online collection, doing a search on the subject terms assigned to the book will help you find more books on that topic.
  • See if there is a bibliography or works cited/consulted section in your book.  If the author thought these books helped in the creation of a book on that topic, they will likely help you as well.
  • Ask your professor for ideas for additional resources.
  • Ask a libarian for assistance.
