*** The front pages of the three Controversial Issues databases each have some wonderful lists of topics.

If you are looking for inspiration, check out some ideas there!*** 



 Start your research on the MHS Library home page., then Library in the sidebar.


Books on the shelves at MHS:

     Search the MHS Library catalog from any computer with Internet access -  click on Search the Library Catalog.  Try a variety of search terms related to your topic – library catalogs have a very specialized vocabulary, so if you are having trouble finding material, please ask the librarian!


     If your results include items with a blue e or a triangle, they are ebooks or video clips. Please check the Search the Catalog page (link in the left column) for the passwords you need to open them.



     Click on Databases then:
