We have many academic, college-level encyclopedias in our Print Reference collection on the 2nd floor of the library. To find relevant titles on your topic in that collection, search the library catalog by keyword or subject, and limit the collection to Reference. (Or add the term "encyclopedia" as a search term.)
The library also has access to a number of online reference sources. The major collections of these online resources are represented in the tabs above.
Through Gale E-Books, we have access to authoritative encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, handbooks, almanacs and other reference materials on a range of topics, from religion to business to history.
Search tip: Limit your search by Audience to "Academic."
Many of these search terms or Subject headings may prove helpful when researching your paper.
Subject headings are often a more accurate and comprehensive way of searching for a topic than keyword searching. Subject headings can be found on the left-hand column of search results in the catalog, or at the end of a book's catalog entry.
