Books are a good place to begin to find background information about your question. Specific types of books, called reference books, are especially useful in providing context about a subject area. The library has both print and electronic reference books for you to search and use.
To search for books located in the library, use the Library Catalog tab on the library homepage. When searching for books keep a few points in mind:
You can enter general topic information, however, keeping the concept mapping exercise in mind, remember that you can focus.
Do not search too many terms at once. You will usually perform more than one search to find sufficient information.
Keeping your terms simple and direct for keyword searching works best.
