Encyclopedia of Religion, edited by Lindsay Jones was the best resource to start with. Unfortunately, it seems that no library in the Orange County Public Library system has this reference! While doing my research at the Costa Mesa library, however, I came across the 16 volume Encyclopedia of Religion (1993) by Mircea Eliade. I fist looked under “Buddhism” and found a reference to “bodhisattva path”. I then found a reference to “bodhisattva path” was its own entry. I should have gone directly to the index section to check if “bodhisattva path” was its own entry.

  • Q: Is Scientology considered a religion? I’m having a hard time finding anything that suggests that it is official. I am afraid for my friend who just moved to Hollywood and seems to be way into it.

    1. When I was little, my mom used to say, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite” when I went to bed. I’ve been having trouble sleeping recently because I keep thinking about bed bugs. I was wondering if there really is such a thing as a bed bug? If so, what kind of bugs are they? I’d like to find a picture of them, a description of them, where they live in the world, and what they eat, etc. Perhaps if I know more about them, I won’t be as freaked out about going to bed each night and I’ll be able to get some sleep.

      1. Yes, there really is such as thing.  The are called, “Cimex lectularius”. You can see a picture of the in volume 3 of Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia on page 266. You will find all kinds of information on bed bugs in this volume including their habitat, distribution, physical characteristics, feeding and more

      2. Consulting the class wiki I began looking for Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia (2003). As with all the other hard copy references I used the Orange County Public Library OPAC to find the copy at one of my local libraries. Locating the answer was simple after seeing how the volumes were organized. Each volume was dedicated to a type of creature (reptiles, birds, insects). I did an index search for “bed bugs” in Vol. 3: Insects.

      3. Q: I’m doing a report on crocodiles, but want to find out more about that type of reptile. Like, what other reptiles are they related to?

    A: You will be able to find this type of information in Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia. Please see volume 7 which is all about reptiles. There is an entry for “crocodilians” which is the order that crocodiles belong to. Also included are their relative, the alligator, and many others.

    1. I’m in a science for poets (in other words, a class for English majors to get science requirements fulfilled!) class this term, and we are supposed to present a short presentation about a notable scientist who is part of a minority of some sort in this country. I was thinking of doing an African American woman, and because my grandma was recently diagnosed with cancer, I was wondering if there might be an African American woman who is or was a cancer researcher. If you can’t find someone, then I think I’ll just do Albert Einstein and say he was a minority in that he was really, really smart.

      1. Jane Cooke Wright was an African American cancer researcher. She is known as the “Mother of Chemotherapy”. You can find her in the Biography Resource Center database.

      2. I first search the American National Biography via SJSU King Library. I did a search on Black History and Female under Health & Medicine. None of the results returned cancer research. I then searched the Biography Resource Center on the King Library database. I selected “research scientist” as occupation, American and African American, then Female. My search returned two pages and I spotted “American cancer researcher” next to Jane Cooke Wright.

      3. Q: I am in a film class and looking for important film directors in the gay and lesbian genre.

    A: You may do a Category browse in the Biography Resource Center database. Browse to “LGBT Figures”. I list of biographies is shown with their occupation, such as “filmmaker”. Pedro Almodovar is an important director to get your started.

    1. I stumbled upon this fabulous novel called Cat in Gloves by someone named Denis Delaney. I haven’t been able to find anything else that he has written, and I am dying to learn more about this author. Can you find some information about him? I’d like to see a list of the things he has written and find out about his personal life.

      1. Peter M. Green is the actual name of the author. He wrote Cat in Gloves under the pseudonym “Denis Delaney”. You can find more about Peter M. Green in the Biography Resource Center database.

      2. While still in the Biography Resource Center, I did a search for Denis Delaney, to no avail. I then checked the Literature Resource Center via the King Library database and recognized the name “Peter Green” was the same name I got from the Biography Resource Center. I went back to Biography Resource Center, did my Denis Delaney search again, then clicked on Peter M. Green. I then realized that Denis Delaney was his pseudonym when he wrote Cat in Gloves. Tricky!

      3. Q: I heard that Stephen King wrote under the pseudonym “Richard Bachman”. Where there any other names?

    A: Yes, John Swithen and Eleanor Druse.

    1. I need to do a brief presentation about Jane Addams. I have looked in the catalog, and I have found several books about her, but since the presentation is short, I am wondering if you might have a shorter biography that includes the important points of her life. I need to talk about the Hull House and maybe something about her efforts for peace and her Nobel Prize. Do you have a source that gives a succinct biography? My grouchy professor said that we are not supposed to use Wikipedia. Drat!

      1. Search Jane Addams in the Biography Reference Bank database. The first result offers a short bibliography on her touching on Hull House, efforts for peace and her Nobel Peace Prize presented in 1931.

      2. I searched the Biography Reference Bank database on Wilson Web via the King Library. The database offers an advanced search interface where the user enters the first and/or last name. Additional searches by DOB, ethnicity and many other filters are available.

      3. Q: I’m curious which people in the film industry are from Michigan. Where can I look?

    A: The Biography Reference Bank database is searchable by Profession/Activity and Place of Origin. Begin to type in “film” under Profession/Activity and pick the profession you’d like. Do the same for Place of Origin.

    1. I recently read Six Characters in Search of an Author, and now I am interested in Luigi Pirandello. I’d like to find his obituary from one of the big newspapers, perhaps the New York Times. I only know the year he died (not the date), so I can’t just look at the microfilm for the New York Times from a particular day. How should I go about finding the obituary? Hint: The Italian title “Sra” is equivalent to “Mrs.”

      1. You can find his obituary in the ProQuest Historical Newspapers: New York Times database. Search Luigi Pirandello and Document Type: Obituary.

      2. I checked the ProQuest Historical Newspapers: New York Times database via the King Library. A search for Luigi Pirandello came back with 667 documents. I then added, Document Type: Obituary, which narrowed to 13 documents.

      3. Q: I’m curious about articles on Howard Stern when he started broadcasting in New York. Where can I find articles?

    A: Search the ProQuest Historical Newspapers: New York Times database. Do a search on Howard Stern, document type Front Page to narrow the search down.

    1. I am writing a paper on the legalization of abortion in the United States, and I was wondering which president of the United States was the first one to use the word in a written address to the U.S. Congress. I also need the date (the month, the day, and the year), and the official name of the document in which the president included the term.

      1. Per The American Presidency Project, Richard Nixon wrote in 271-Special Message to the Congress on the Problems of Population Growth on July 18, 1969.

      2. I searched the American Presidency Project online. I searched “abortion”, type: Written: Messages-to Congress by the President. I searched chronologically and found the paper.

      3. Q: I am curious about executive orders that went out shortly after September 11, 2001. Where can I find these?

    A: The American Presidency Project allows to browse by “Executive Orders”, you can then specify a year from a drop down. You will be able to find all Orders chronologically.

    1. I am thinking about being a librarian. How much can I expect to make as an academic librarian? Is the market getting better or worse for employment for librarians?

      1. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook academic librarians start at $51,160. Job prospects are good because the amount of retiring librarians, however, the growth rate of jobs is slower than average. Looks like technical stills are sought after though.

      2. I checked the Occupational Outlook Handbook at http://www.bls.gov/oco/ . I browsed from the “Professional” menu to “Education, Training, Library and Museum” and choose “Librarians”.

      3. Q: I’m pretty angry about my job because I think I’m underpaid. Can you tell me what the median earning of a computer systems analyst at an insurance company should be making?

    A: $69,990

    1. I am studying poverty in my sociology class, and I am trying to find out what the poverty line was in 1960 and then again in 1990 for a family of four. What should I do to find this information?

      1. The Historical Statistics of the United States database allows you to search by Index term: Poverty Line. You can then access a tables by year and by size of family.

      2. I consulted Historical Statistics of the United States via the King Library database. I found a table called Minimum subsistence budgets and poverty lines, by family size: 1908–1963. You can search by size of family.

      3. Q: Where can I find the life expectancy for a white female over the last 100 years?

    A: You can access Expectation of life at birth, by sex and race: 1850–1998 table via The Historical Statistics of the United States database.

    1. I have a friend who emailed me and told me she is moving to Belgium and she wants me to visit. I am so excited to go visit her in Europe! I love Belgian waffles and chocolate! I already have my passport, some comfortable white athletic shoes for walking, a big fanny pack, and lots of batteries for my camera. But I’m confused, because she told me I could fly into either Milwaukee or Chicago and then take a bus to Belgium. What is she talking about? Where is she moving?

      1. Your friend is most likely moving to Belgium, Wisconsin. It’s about 37 miles from Milwaukee.

      2. I have to look up many zip codes for work so I first consulted www.usps.com, did a zip code search by city “Belgium” in WI since that was most likely the state. I got zip 53004, Belgium, WI. I then did a Mapquest search to see how far it was from Milwaukee. This probably was not the intended method to answer the question, however. I spent some time searching World Almanac, Encyclopedia Britannica, The Columbia gazetteer of the world and other database sources, but could not turn up anything that would have easily told the patron that the location was not the country Belgium.

      3. Q: I’m looking for information on Belgium geological makeup.

    A: The GeoRef database offers several articles about minerals and other soil make-up of Belgium.

      1. ~ 1 ½ hr.
