Use Google!

If you're a student, research scholar or member of staff, are you aware that as well as Google, there's Google Books and Google Scholar? Google Books - thousands and thousands of books, full-text or with excerpts. Often the excerpts are enough to give you the info you need. And if you've read the book but need to cite a page reference, Google Books can help you find that page! Google Scholar - like a free, readily-available index to books and journals. Search on your subject, and retrieve the kind of materials that your advisors would like to see you citing!
