Subject Encyclopedias and Dictionaries

Subject encyclopedias can cover a topic in more detail than a general encyclopedia and often provide a good bibliography at the end of an article. Use the index volume of the encyclopedia to find the proper volume number and pages for your topic.

Search the EMU Library Catalog to locate subject encyclopedias and guides which you may find useful for your topic. Use general keywords relevant to your topic ("women," "music," etc.), and limit the keyword search to "reference" on the main search screen.

For more online titles in various disciplines, try Gale Virtual Reference Library or Sage eReference Books.
