You will find most of the relevant books for this project tucked in the reference shelves. Please don't check books out during the week. Materials can go out over a weekend, but MUST be returned on Monday!
Dont hesitate to look beyond what the librarian has pulled for your use. There may be books in fashion, cooking, "technology" (think of things we build and use as tools), military, social sciences, etc.
If you get stuck, ask Mrs. Anderson!
Be sure to check our online databases. Here are a few links to get you started. Be sure to use keyworkd found in your pre-research step. Bear in mind, too, that Miss Austen's work spanned the late 18th to early 19th centuries.
