STEP TWO

Search for the books that are available in your state by clicking on the titles below.   Enter your zip code to see if the book is available at your local library.  If a book is not available through your library, you can see if the nearest library to you will allow you to check out the book through inter-library loan.  Every library's policy is different so it is best to check with your local librarian.

Since many of the books on the list are textbooks, some libraries in your area may not lend them out.  If you are attending a college or university, this is where your access to inter-library loan can help this project, as students tend to have more access to university library books. The books with an asterisk next to the title tend to be available at most public libraries.

Once you have located the books, insert the bookmark on the page that mentions Dr. Sims. The page numbers are listed next to each title so you don’t have to search through each book.
