Reference resources -- particularly subject encyclopedias -- are great starting points for your research. Encyclopedia articles offer concise overviews of a topic, summaries of key research in a particular discipline, and often include a bibliography which can serve as a starting list of sources for your project.
For detailed academic discussions of more narrowly focused research, search an article index to find scholarly journal articles.
Like our library catalog, these bibliographies describe documents, rather than search their full-text.
Search tips: More searchable content means larger result sets, and many full-text databases lack detailed cataloging or metadata.
