CPHS has nearly 40,000 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 MINNESOTA HISTORY books are located in the 977.6 section of the library (search "Minnesota history"). These books are located downstairs in the LMC. Check the numbers on the ends and front of each shelf. Don't forget to scour our REFERENCE collection as well. There are lots of treasures here!
