When you find a book that is relevant to your topic, always check the bibliography for other sources and then ask a librarian for help with finding them. The author of the book has already done much of your research for you, and he/she spent many weeks/months/years of his/her life doing research. Take advantage of it!
Search the full text of books that Google has scanned and stored in its digital database. The books come from large research university and public libraries. Full text is available for books published before 1923. For books still under copyright protection, only a small snippet of text is available.
If you teacher has reserve books for you to read, they will be available on 2 hour reserve at the Welcome desk.
After getting an overview with reference sources, it is time to start searching the online catalogs for books that focus more specifically on the topic you have chosen.
