Finding Books

Your assignments in English 110 often require you to use books to support your research. This section will lead you through the process of searching for, finding and locating books in the Library.

It is important to remember how books fit into the information landscape before you incorporate them into your paper.


Books: Overview
Pro
Con
  • Books contain in-depth information on a topic

  • Library books have been selected for their quality
  • Books take a long time to write and publish, so they are not always as current as other sources.
  • There is no system that searches through the full text of all books to find specific paragraphs on your topic. You'll have to spend some time gathering books that are perfect for your paper.
