Re: Henry VII

Poster: LWright740@aol.com

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
 is fun!

 library had a picture of Cleopatra...)
