Library Catalogs

Are you trying to assist a student who is developing their topic? A good place to start and see if there are enough book resources available is here :

The Thacher School Library Catalog

If you didn't find anything here on the topic then try ;

The Library of Congress Catalog

Once the students find titles here that may be of importance for his/her project they can e-mail their requests to Ms. LaForge. Please remind the students to request only what they can read in a timely manner. We are only able to renew books one time. So if they find ten books they think will be useful, only request a few (2-3). When they are finished with them, they can request more.
