Researching books on the American Revolution

If you need to find a book about a person, you can check the biography section, which is in the main room of the library.  All of the biographies are in alphabetical order by the last name of the person about whom they are written--not the author, so if you're looking for a book on Benedict Arnold, the book will be labeled "B ARNOLD"  and will be found towards the beginning of the biography section because his name begins with "A".  

If you can't find a book on your person or topic, look for a book on the American Revolution and check the index.

Here are just a few of the books on the American Revolution.  There are lots more in the library.  Just check the catalog.

Researching books on the American colonies

If you're looking for a book on one of the colonies, check the catalog (see link on this guide that's labeled "Library Catalog.")

If you need to find a book about a person, you can check the biography section, which is in the main room of the library.  Every biography is listed in alphabetical order by the last name of the person about whom the book is written--not the author, so if you're looking for Cotton Mather, the book will be labeled "B MATHER." 

If you can't find a biography on your person or a book on your topic, find a book about the American colonies and check for your topic in the index. 

Here are just a few of the books on the American colonies.  There are lots more in the library.  Just check the catalog.
