What or Who do I Look for?

Use our Online Library Catalog here:

1. While there are some books on a cart for your class in the library, there may be more on the shelves depending upon the topic or concentration you decide upon. We have reference books as well as books that may be checked out.  Remember, you are looking at the late 19th century and turn of the 20th century.  Other terms we use to describe this era are "Gilded Age," "Progressive Era," "Industrial Revolution," etc.  

2.  Look in the indexes of general books, to find a more narrow topic.

3.  If you have trouble finding books in our library, you should also try your local public library or one of the four university libraries that allow borrowing privileges to our AP/Honors students.  If you are in any AP or Honors class, you qualify--please ask us how to get access to these libraries.  Listed below are web addresses of the major public library systems in our area.
