|This pathfinder was created for the Three Rivers School "Egypt" assignment January 2007.|
Use our online catalog (OPAC) to search for books about your topic.
To search the OPAC type in the key words of your topic in the "Search our catalog"
box our library Web Page (http://www.dpls.us/).
If you're researching a person, type in the person's name. If you have a broad topic
like "Egypt," try adding another keyword (like "Pyramids" or
"Mummies") to narrow your topic.
Most books on Ancient Egypt are in the Call Number 932s. You may also find books that include Ancient Egypt information related to topics like Mummies (393.3), Hieroglyphics (493.1) and Art (700's). Biographies of famous people from this era are in the Biography section in the children's room or in the adult area. Both Children's and Adult biographies are arranged alphabetically according to the last name of the person the book is about.
If the books you want are checked out, you can place holds on books if the
titles you find are checked out or at another library. Please ask if you need
help placing a hold, that is what we're here for.
