Encyclopedias

Why Encyclopedias?

 

Encyclopedias are a good place to start if you need an overview of a topic you are unfamiliar with. They will often include a bibliography of sources that you can consult for more information. To search the UCLA Library's encyclopedias, see Reference Universe below. Alternately, in the UCLA Library Catalog, do a KEYWORD search for encyclopedias [and a broad topic]. Scan the results for titles related to your topic.
