Using Reference Resources

Resources such as specialized encyclopedias are a great way to:

  • Get an overview of a topic
  • Discover key themes and concepts
  • Find more books and articles on a topic using the bibliography

Can't find your exact topic? Look instead for an entry on:

  • The country or region - Greece instead of Athens; Czech Republic, Czechoslovakia, or Eastern Europe instead of Prague
  • The time period - ancient city planning
  • Named persons - planners, designers, public officials associated with your topic
  • The movement - Garden City; City Beautiful
