ENGL 357 Bernhard: Books

Why use books for research?

Books containing scholarly work provide:

  • Well established ideas about a topic
  • Contents that are often written by experts
  • Background information
  • Overview of big issues
  • Bibliographies, or list of sources that you find and use.
  • Use books quickly by browsing through the table of contents or by using the index to find precisely what you need.
