We've pulled several book resources for your class. Feel free to go behind the circulation desk and look through them. Remember to check the index in the back of the book to see if it has your topic. When you find one you like, give the card in the back of the book to one of the assistants. When you finish with the book, give the book back to the assistants instead of putting it on the shelf.
Don't forget - Encyclopedias are a great print resource too!
