>> CHELSEA: The library can be a pretty overwhelming place. There is so much information. Where do you even start? The first place you need to go is straight to the librarian's desk. They are especially trained to help you find whatever you need. Plus, they'll show you the best way to search information and cite it correctly. If there is a specific resource you are looking for, and your library doesn't have it, the librarian can usually get it for you from another place. Another good place to start is in the reference section. Look up keywords about your topic in the encyclopedia, dictionary, or textbook and go from there. You might even find specialized reference books for specific topics like science, music, or sports. The best part about the library is that they usually have access to stuff that you won't be able to find anywhere else. Wait, I take that back. The best part is that it's free.
