Answer

To find a book on your topic, do a search in WorldCat, our catalog. The link is below.

Try a subject search by typing or copy/pasting su:Women West (U.S.) History.

You can use the subject links in the record to explore other options.

As far as getting started on the assignment, just be sure to read the directions carefully, and follow each step. For example, one of the steps is to do a correct bibliography, so be sure to get the citation. In WorldCat, there is a cite/export link at the top of the page once you are in the book record. You can copy and paste that into your Word document, correcting for spacing and hanging indention.

For tips on using WorldCat, see the LibGuide below. For citation help, go to the Cite the EZ Way tab in our MLA LibGuide below.
