Finding a Specialized Encyclopedia

Specialized encyclopedias exist on almost any subject. These specialized encyclopedias contain articles and information on a particular subject and can be very helpful in starting your research in a certain area. You can search for a specialized encyclopedia using the catalog and searching for keywords: encyclopedia and (your subject). For example: encyclopedia and music, encyclopedia and religion, encyclopedia and culture. Many of the specialized encyclopedias are located in the Reference section of the library.
