Knowledge is an essential part of any investigation.  It is important to collect as much information as you can from witnesses prior to doing any field work so the investigator has a better picture and understanding of what he may encounter.  It's also equally important to try to get a history of the area, in the event that this may be a repeat occurrence, or if there was ever any prior investigations or a natural cause determined.

As a side, there is a treasure trove of knowledge right at our fingertips.  The internet is a great source of information, and can quickly and efficiently aide the investigator if he knows how to use it properly.  This can be best summed up by saying one shouldn't trust sites that repeat the same information, word for word.  One needs to find collaborating information, not mirrored posts.

But, in this digital age of ours, an often overlooked source of information can readily be found at the library.  Books can provide a history of the area as well as provide research material to further an investigation, and might be able to collaborate something found online.

I've often turned to my books to find something more that I couldn't find online.  It seems that, even though the internet is modern and constantly being updated, there are some things that just aren't on that source.  The same can be said in reverse, about how books may not necessarily have all that the internet has to offer.  I'm not favoring one over the other, I'm just a proponent of using all available assets.

With that said, allow me then to list what relevant books I have along this subject matter.  Keep in mind that this list does not include that various paperback books collection UFO reports, the numerous Zachariah Stichlin books, ancient astronauts books, Atlantis books, and so on that I have in my possession.  Nor does it cover all the various bibles I have (King James, Satanic, Mormon, at cetera), books on Hinduism, or the Necronomican series of books... of which I have a lot.  I am also constantly adding to this; I usually keep an eye out for books whenever I'm at thrift stores, new or used book stores, rummage sales, whatever.

I'm making this list because, in a sense, this is part of who I am, and could be considered part of our tools or equipment used. I've been meaning to put this up for a while; this is just the first time I've actually went ahead and wrote everything down.

Newest addition: Dowsing for Beginners, by Richard Webster.

The title is a bit confusing. What sort of measurement is used to define a beginner, and why would you go dowsing for one?
