Information Sources
Books cover virtually any topic, fact or fiction. For research
purposes, you may be looking for books that provide a
good introduction and overview of your topic, or the book
may focus on a very specific aspect of a broader subject.
Libraries organize and store their book collections on shelves
called "stacks." The books are arranged by call number using the

Library of Congress call number system.
Electronic books or "ebooks" are now available electronically
on the Web and are purchased by your library.
