Do not ignore book sources for information! A book is easy to find and will often lead you to other sources, such as other books, journal articles and websites.
Unlike public libraries that collect for a general audience, UW-Sheboygan librarians and professors have selected books for our collection which supplement the courses taught here. The other libraries within the UW- system have similar holdings. Remember to make your requests from other libraries 4 or 5 days before you need the book, although in many instances it will arrive in 2-3 days.
Call numbers classify books by subject and can help you to locate additional resources. Browsing the shelf where you found one book can lead to finding others on the same subject.
