CPHS has approximately 39,000 print resources. You can consult our online catalog, DESTINY, both in school and from home, to find out if we have materials on your topic. Read the descriptions of each resource. If a resource looks like it has potential, write down the Dewey number of the book. Most of our CHILD DEVELOPMENT books are located in the 649 and 305.23. These books are located downstairs in the LMC. Check the numbers on the ends and front of each shelf.  

Try searching using some key words related to your research question. Click "subject" or "keyword." Search broadly. For instance, we may not have a book on the physical characteristics of a 5 - 6 year old, but this topic might be included in a general book on CHILD DEVELOPMENT (look in the Table of Contents at the front of the book, or the Index at the back of the book, to see if it contaitns the specific information that you are looking for). Your search will yield a list of resources available on your topic.
