Why Use Books?

Books provide in-depth information on broad subject areas. Researchers use them when they need:

  • Historical context or comprehensive background information for their subject area
  • Synthesis and analysis of events and information

Note: Often a chapter or two, rather than the entire book, are all that you may need.
