Why Use Books and eBooks?

Books are a great place to start your research because:

  • They're a good source for background and a quick history on a topic: the who, what, where, when and why!
  • They can also help narrow down a broad topic and find smaller issues within a topic.
  • They've been reviewed and evaluated before being published, so they are credible resources.
