Why Use Books

Reasons why books could be excellent sources for this project.

  • Books provide in-depth information on a range of topics and often contain excellent bibliographies.

  • Books on the same subjects are grouped together, so looking for books on the shelves can often lead you to find other great resources for your topic.

  • Remember, as Kingsborough students you have access to far more than just what is on the shelves here at Kingsborough. We have many ebooks (which you can read or download from your home computer). Additionally, if a book is available on the stacks at another CUNY school, then you can have it sent here via Interlibrary Loan.
