  1. Encyclopedias
    They provide general information and are a good starting point if you know little or nothing about the topic. Be sure to check more than one set; each one covers subjects in a unique way.
  2. Special References
    These sources are found in the reference section in the MIS Library and provide more detailed information than general encyclopedias do. They include biographical dictionaries, geographical dictionaries, almanacs, thesauri, writing style manuals, field guides, and many specialized books dealing with specific topics.
  3. Non-Fiction Books
    This category includes all biographies and all books organized by Dewey Decimal numbers. Ask Mrs. Duncan, the librarian, to check the online catalog with your keywords to find the appropriate books.
  4. Magazine Articles
    Articles from 1985 to the present day are found by using Infotrac at the Tenessee Electronic Library (TEL). In addition, the library has past copies of several magazines. Ask the librarian to help you find the titles you need.
  5. Internet Resources
    You must have completed an Internet User Policy form with a parent's signature in order to search Internet sources. Use the MIS Library web page as a starting point.  GoogleBing.com, or YAHOO are recommended as search engines, and the Berkeley Librarian's Guide to the Internet is recommended as a subject tree. Below is a comprehensive list of Internet Curriculum links suggested by the library media specialist to help with your research.
