Re: Henry VII
I applaud you my lady! We are an educationally oriented organization and we
should answer peoples questions. On the other hand...... I just love this
quote: "Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, but teach him to fish and he
eats for a life time." I don't know who said it, but I know it I went to the
reference library I could look the quote up and find out (Bartlett's?). BTW
the reverse snowball search is my personal favorite.
Wishing I had more time for research myself,

If you have internet access, go to Amazon.com and do a subject
search. Note down books that look interesting. Then go back to the
library for an ILL.
Failing all else, go to the librarian and ask her how to find a
good biography of H7. Odds are that even the smallest libraries will
have a reference book that lists biographies of all sorts (and all
sorts of other books about books!) In the absense of an author
and/or title, she can even make a subject ILL request for "a
biography of Henry VII."
Please, *please* do not be too shy to ask for help. You're not
"bothering" the librarians -- YOU are the reason that reference
librarians exist. They want to help you. Ferreting out information
(one time librarian who vividly remembers the lady that asked if the
library had a picture of Cleopatra...)
