Use databases to find articles about your country or region.
Some of these databases need you to log in. Brookwood's username and password are on your assignment sheet.
Where to Find Books
You can find most of the library books on your country in:
The 900s in the ORANGE section
The 900s in the BLUE section
If you're researching a region, look for a book on the country your region is in, then look for a section in the book on your region (indexes are helpful here).
You can also find articles about your country or region in the World Book Encyclopedia (on the shelf next to the printer) and The Berkshire Encyclopedia of China (on the shelf at the left side of the computer area, next to the Yoda poster).
And you can always ask Mrs. Geraty and Ms. Keller to help you find books.
