Books

Search the Ross Elementary Library Catalog (library.nhsd.net) to locate non-fiction books related to the country you are researching. Non-Fiction books are identified with a Dewey Decimal Number (000 – 999) and are organized by subject, which means where you find one book is most likely where you will find more.

Encyclopedia

You can use World Book Encyclopedia to locate information about your country as well. World Book Encyclopedia is available for you to use in print form (book) and online through the Ross Library Webpage. Keep in mind that there is still valuable information in the print encyclopedia. However, be aware that some information such as population will be out of date and you may find more accurate information online.
