Try a keyword search in the library catalog. Once you find a book that is relevant to your topic, use the subject headings of that book to help you find "more like this".
A few useful subject searches in the catalog include:
Not finding enough, or an item checked out? Search WorldCat and request a copy.
You can also search the full text of millions of books in Google Books and then use Interlibrary Loan/WorldCat to get the whole book.
**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.**
