Choose My Sources

Your library is filled with resources to get information. Knowing where to find the type of information that you are looking for is important whether you want to do a report, find the answer to a question, or read about something that interests you.

First you must have a clear topic in mind. For instance, if you want to get a dog and want to learn more about the different breeds, you might ask the question, "Which dog breeds make good family pets?" Then you'll need to decide what types of resources will best help you to learn more about this topic and answer your question.
