Encyclopedia and other reference book entries are intended to give you an overview of a particular topic or issue. Check with your professor to make sure that reference sources are acceptable before citing them in a research paper.
The following selected titles are all located in the Reference Stacks on the main floor of the library (with the exception of the Gale Virtual Reference Library database). Ask a reference librarian to help you find more.
Search for Books, E-books, Videos, DVDs, Journals, and Government Documents from the Library's collections:
Finding Materials in the Library:
Tip: Books are shelved by subject, so other books with similar content to the one you want may be located adjacent to your book.
Tip: Books often contain bibliographies, lists of resources used to research and write the book. You may wish to look at some of these sources for your own research.
Search the WorldCat database for resources from other libraries around the world. If you find something that would be useful for your research, use Interlibrary Loan to order books, articles and DVDs.
