Librarian's Research Tips:
Start with some background reading. While it is tempting to start your research by identifying available books and articles, this process will be very time-consuming if you have not read up on your topic.
Use some of the reference databases and/or books recommended on this guide to help you locate important names, dates, and keywords. Using this strategy, research is often better and takes less time!
After you have completed your background reading and developed a good list of keywords, you are ready to move onto finding Books.
