Research Tip -- Books

  • You do not need to read the whole book!  Oftentimes, you will just need a section or chapter.
    • Use the Index and Table of Contents to help you find useful sections for your project.
  • Pay attention to the publication date.  Information/statistics can quickly become outdated in books.
  • Oftentimes, the introduction to the book will give you a summary of the chapters and argument of the book.
