Getting Started with Library Research

Exploring a topic?

  • Try an encyclopedia or other
    reference book to explore a new subject! We have general and specialized
    subject encyclopedias like the Encyclopedia of American Social History or Encyclopedia of Catholic Literature. Ask a librarian for help!
  • You can use online encyclopedias through Gale Virtual Reference Library or through Oxford Reference Online.  Or do your background research using one of our subject guides.
