ILRLR 2300: Argumentation and Debate (Fall 2016): Find Books and Government Hearings

Guide to resources for researching the resolution: "The US should use market-based solutions to decrease fossil fuel emissions" (or something to that effect, resolution wording has not been finalized).

Getting Context and Finding Books

If you need to find terminology, use an encyclopedia (or encyclopedia-like) source:

Once you have some terminology specific to your topic, look for books in the library catalog:

Can't Get the Book at Cornell?

Use Requests on the Library homepage to:
  • Hold, recall, request materials from the Annex, and library-to-library book delivery.
  • Interlibrary Loan material that Cornell does not own from libraries worldwide.
  • Borrow Direct is a reciprocal borrowing program among the Ivies. If Cornell's copy is unavailable, you can borrow it from another Ivy. It is fast -- usually only a few days!
