Write down as many different types of resources and services you can find at a library (e.g., magazines, copy service, etc.). If you had to write a research paper on African lions, what steps would you take to find information at the library (without using the Internet)?
“thumb through” = look casually at
“I thumbed through a number of books related to my research topic, but I didn’t find what I needed.”
“bite off more than you can chew” = try to do more than you can accomplish
“I think you’ve bit off more than you can chew in this case. Trying to write a research paper on the history of civilization in one week is really impossible.”
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
What online libraries and resources have you used instead of visiting a library at your school or in the local community?
