Books & Reference Materials

Work with the librarian at your school (if there is one) to best access the print and digital collections there.

Additionally, some textbooks in the digital libraries below are open access, and these books may offer the foundational information you may seek when developing  your research project. Several of the collections below also include standard reference material, which is great for getting background information.
