Leadership Search Tips

Begin your search using Destiny, World Book Online, SIRS Discoverer, Power Library (for AP Images), EBSCO and Gale Virtual Reference Library, and the link.  If you are researching a world leader then also search Salem History.  Our biography books are under the windowsill in order by the person's last name, not the author's in this case.
