Your public or school library has catalogue references to help you locate books containing entomology information. Look for key words such as entomology, insects, arthropods, biology, zoology, spiders, ants, bees, beetles, etc. The librarian will be happy to help you if you have difficulty finding suitable books.

Magazines, newspapers, radio and television are also sources of reference. Be alert for articles about other subjects that include insects in the discussion--for instance, gardening articles that include information about insect pests. Advertisements depicting insects can be clipped out for making visual aids.
