Encyclopedia articles are a great way to gather background information as you begin your research.
Once you have a good encyclopedia article, use the tabs across the top of the guide to find books, articles, and web pages in this subject area. The Cite Your Sources tab will help you to properly cite the resources you find.
As always, if your research is taking too long or you have questions use the Ask Us button on the right hand side of this page to contact your Librarians for further assistance.
These books are kept on the shelves in the Reference Area. We will photocopy your encyclopedia articles for free, including the information you need for your bibliography.
