When starting any research paper, it is extremely important and helpful to find some background information about your topic. This will provide you with the foundation for your research paper. Background sources can be found in both print and electronic formats.
To find books using the Hoffman Family Library's on-line catalog, it is recommended that you do a keyword search using human services and other words related to your specific topic.
To narrow down your results, try performing a subject search. Here are some examples to help you get started searching for books in the library catalog:
Addiction AND Alcohol
