research process home page ->using print resources
There are different ways to access information depending on whether you are using a print or online source.
In print sources, information is generally accessed from the TABLE OF CONTENTS or from the INDEX located at the back of books (or journal volumes).
Below is an example of the table of contents and an example of an entry from the subject index of a book about space stations and platforms.
The table of contents provides you with a BROAD outline of what's covered in the book. The index provides more detailed access to the book's contents.
