Stuck, Cannot Find Dr. Young's Research Notes In Mansion

I'm stuck in the Arkham Mansion. The game is directing me to "Search Arkham Mansion to find Dr. Young's research notes before Joker." However, I have explored all the rooms in the mansion and haven't managed to advance the plot. WTF are you supposed to do here?

They are in a book that's sort of sticking out on the bottom floor near the two guys that you've saved.

are you guys following the hand prints? they should lead you to the library then to a book on the shelf... make sure you have your detective vision on.

After you drop the chandelier and save two people, you then need to go to the West Wing. If I remember right, it was previously accessible but becomes accessible once you hit this point in the story. The door to the West Wing is toward the end of the main hall you pass through earlier, the one with a giant statue of a guy in the middle. The same room also has like a cage with an electric security door preventing you from going into the East Wing. Hope that helps.

This game is awesome but some of the level designs are less than intuitive.

Go to the West Wing for what. Just... go there? I've already gone there and it doesn't do anything. I also don't see any hand prints. If someone could be a little thorough in their response that has done it, that would be appreciated.

I don't see any hand prints, I've saved the two guys by dropping the chandelier, don't see any books sticking out anywhere. I really hate it when game developers get too cute with things and make stuff that should be common sense into brain surgery...

Have you scanned the safe in Dr Young's office? That's how you get her fingerprint data, so you can track her. Then when you're on the bottom level of the library you'll see which book she touched.

Use Detective Mode and look around. There's a vent you can use to bypass the doors.

to get into her office you have to go through the vents to an area in the ceiling... like a catwalk type area... then to another vent... then you'll find her office. But her notes are not there. this is where you pick up the hand print trail that leads you back to the library.

So Fuc*ing mad

Ok guys:
I have rescued the two hostages in the library. I have gone to the west wing. I have gone to the records office and cut loose the brother Cash. I have gone into the north wing. While in there I come to a door that is blocked. I went into the vent to the left of the door and found the Amudes riddle. Now I am stuck, I do not know how to get into the doc's office. I went back to the west wing but there is a force field blocking the door. Please help!

Holy crap Batman!

Finally found it. It's in the North Corridor room; in the very northern part of the room, a vent up high in the area where that Amadeus Arkham's old cell is.

Here's some pics of the location.

Thanks guys. I found it last night too. I had to stop playing for a couple of hours, then when I came back I found it. One of those instances where you cannot see the forest through the trees. Love the game but it is crappy at telling you where to go next.

The vent show here-
http://img188.imageshack.us/i/img5846z.jpg/
This vent was inaccessible (could not jump using the usual F key). I thought it was a glitch so i quit and restarted from the last checkpoint. Still nothing and i'm still stuck at the vent. Also, is it necessary to solve the riddle before the vent becomes accessible? highly unlikely but still...Please help me out!!! i registered at this site just to post this one querry
