Why Books?

Books will help your research, especially:

  • If you are looking for an in-depth, comprehensive treatment of a topic
  • Need general information
  • Need historical context
  • Need images
  • And many more....

Keep in mind that you often don't need to read the entire book for your reseach.  Check the table of contents and the index for relevant pages.
