ANTH 281a: Graduate Library Orientation: Encyclopedias+

Smart Places to Start


Specialized encyclopedias (as well as dictionaries and handbooks) can be great places to start your research, especially if you need to gather some background information, define some terms, or understand a theory.

Most of the resources listed here are online but there are many others available only in print--many in the Reference Collection in Geisel Library.  Ask a librarian for help in locating others.
