Research Guide - Pathfinder

Here are some resources to learn more about alcohol use, abuse, and alcoholism.  Conducting a search for information in an organized manner will help us locate what we need with the least amount of work. 

It also helps ensure that we start projects with good information.  To see an easy to follow outline to help organize a research project, check our Mr. B's "Take Five" Research Process or see Mr. B's Research Seminar at Club TNT.  If you would like some help writing, please look at Mr. B's Writing Quick Tips for "tips & tricks" and links to other Websites that cover virtually ALL aspects grammar and writing.  

Topic:  While alcohol is legal and widely used in our culture, many people will find that it creates problems in their life or in the life of someone they love.  Understanding the effects of alcohol use and abuse is the key to making good decisions about drinking. 

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism are not just "adult problems."  Youth also face issues and challenges regarding alcohol.  Educating people of all ages about the impacts of drinking is the first step in preventing future problems or recovering from alcohol abuse or alcoholism.

Library Subject Headings.  Understanding the difference between keyword and subject heading searches is important.  Keywords represent text that appears in a document. 

Subject headings are assigned by an information specialists to help researchers identify resources that cover similar topics.  A powerful tool, subject headings create connections between sources and allow a user to benefit from someone else's work classifying information. 

Computerize library catalogs, can be searched with keywords, just like most Internet search engines.   Many useful resources, however, do not share keywords -- this means they will not be located by keyword searches. 

Subject headings, however, identify documents that contain information about similar topics even when those documents do not share keywords.  Here is a listing of common subject headings (Sears), typically used in public and school libraries.

• Adult Children of Alcoholics
• Alcohol
• Alcohol & Adolescents
• Alcohol -- Physiological Effect
• Alcoholic Beverages
• Alcoholics
• Alcoholism
• Alcoholism – Personal Accounts

Decimal Numbers

Dewey numbers divide humanity's knowledge, ideas, and artistic creations into ten major categories spanning a range from 000 to 999.

Each sub-category is further divided into nine specialized topics ranging from 1 to 9.  By adding decimals, the specialized topics are broken down even further.

The Dewey Decimal System determines where books are placed on a library's shelves.  The idea is to try and keep related books together so that you can "browse" the shelves by looking at similar books. 

Here are the Dewey Decimal numbers that relate to topics about alcohol:

• 178 Drinking of Alcoholic Beverages
• 306.4 Culture & Institutions
• 344 Drinking Age
• 362.29 Social Problem of Alcohol
• 362.292 Alcoholism
• 363.64 Drinking of Alcoholic Beverages
• 547 Alcohol
• 615 Alcohol -- Physiological Effect
• 613.81 Alcohol Abuse
• 616.86 Alcoholics -- Psychological Aspects
• 363.1251 Drunk Driving
• 641.2 Alcoholic Beverages
