You will not need to read the entire book for this project. Instead, use parts of the book:
- Use the table of contents to find out main ideas related to your topic.
- Use the index at the back of the book to find specific sections of the book focusing on a certain aspect of your topic (e.g., a region, a policy, an event, or a specific person/group).
Type in only the words most important to your topic. If you don't get enough results, you may need to be more general. Sample searches:
poverty AND united states
Once you search your query in the Library Catalog, you can limit the results by Resource Type (books, multimedia) or by Campus.
