    Search the library's online catalog to find books, dvds, and other resources in the library related to your presentation topic.  Books which can be checked out of the library are located on the second floor (at Main).

    Search using your person's name or a related topic.  For example, if you've picked the organization Slow Food International, you could search using the organization's name or, perhaps, the term "slow food." You might also try "volunteers" or "volunteering."

    Any organization's name may be entered in a book search; however if you are looking particularly for lowcountry organizational info, you might want to try the Charleston County Public Library or one of our newspaper databases.
