This is an interesting topic. If you want to find information in books and scholarly journal articles you should go to the library catalog at  The search bar in the middle of the page will give you access to the library catalog.  I would use search terms such as bullying to get at the idea of the nature of bullying.

Use the left-side toolbar to limit the dates to the last 5 years or so. 

The first results you will see will be books and ebooks.  If you want to read an ebook just click on the View eBook button and you will be asked to login using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address.  You can then use the table of contents to navigate to areas of the book that you find interesting or you can use the arrows to move back and forth through the pages.

You'll find ebooks such as Rose, D., & Pierce, V. (2013). Bullying Hauppauge, NY:  Nova Science.

Next, if you would like to see scholarly journal articles on your topic click on the box labeled Article under Format to the left-side toolbar of the results screen.  Set the date limiter to articles published in the last 5 years, and choose Full Text and Peer Reviewed, also in the left-side toolbar. Click on the View Full Text button to be taken into the article.

You'll see articles such as Wolke, D., & Lereya, S. (2015). Long-term effects of bullying. Archive of Disease in Childhood 100(9), 879-879. doi:10.1136/archdischild-2014-306667.

After reading the evidence it will be up to you to use your critical thinking skills to decide if cyberbullying is as bad as face-to-face bullying.

Good luck!
