Both the children's department and the first floor collection will have a good number of books in this section that you may check out. However, when several classes are studying Medieval Times at the same time, there may be very little, or nothing, in this section left to check out. If you find yourself in this situation, don't panic--there are still several options for you, if not quite as convenient.
You may check the "to-be-shelved" carts on first floor for books that have been checked in, but may not be reshelved yet. You may use reference books. These are items that may not be checked out, but which you may use here in the building.
It is a good idea to bring some money to photocopy from these books, or to schedule yourself enough time to use these materials here at the library.

Making Your Research Project a Success!
Again, the keys to a successful library research project are:
- Start early! Be the person who gets the best books first.
- Allow yourself plenty of time during your library visit to do research. Don't count on just being able to breeze in and out. Also, bring money in case you need to photocopy from reference books.
- Ask a librarian for assistance if you keep running into dead ends.
