Creative Writing: Books

A guide to research by Pratima Ghale at Mt. Holyoke College. Used with permission for students at Hollins University, using Wyndham Robertson Library.

Why books?

Books are useful for in-depth information; including historical context, overview, synthesis and analysis of information.  

Note: the process of writing, editing and publishing a book is lengthy, thus even the most recently published books may not contain the most current information on your topic (when you need the most current information, try journal, magazine or newspaper articles.)
