Research Tip 研究提示

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!
