**Here's a little trick! Find the specific area in the library where your topic would be found. If there are not enough books in that area to satisfy you, MOVE TO THE LEFT. Classification systems in the library move to the right from the general to the more specific. If you move to the left, you will move UP in the hierarchy to the more general discipline out of which your topic lives.**
