“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”

The Strunk & White of Research Guides for Students

The Research Virtuoso
By The Toronto Public Library

Every teen could use a basic guide to research just as a reminder of the basic steps or as a way to keep on track during the research process.  The Research Virtuoso is the perfect guide to keep on the shelf.  It follows the basic research process so that if you do not have a librarian on hand or if you are at home and just need a little help you have a reference book that can keep you on track.  This is a reference book that will be especially helpful for students heading off to college where they will need a collection of basic reference books in order to write research papers.
