IMPORTANT! Books are excellent sources of background information, and are recommended for most research projects. Journal articles are more specific, while books will give you broader information - this is why you should always start with a book when doing research. You do not have to read the entire book - the introduction and a few select chapters will usually suffice.
You can keep your print library books for 3 weeks. If you would like to keep them for longer, you can renew them. See this quick video on how to renew books.
