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 ISSUES books are located in the 300, 500, and 600's. 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 educational funding, but this topic might be included in a general book on issues in education. Your search will generate a list of resources available on your topic.
Note that many of the books on your research topics have been pulled and are on the cart. For the books that look at your topic in general, check either the INDEX at the back of the book or the TABLE OF CONTENTS at the beginning of the book to find the page numbers where information on your specific topic can be found.
