Finding Encyclopedias: Search Tips

  • Don't search for your assigned topic word for word. Instead, use the main ideas.

  • Limit your results to encyclopedias: On the left of the results, go to "Shelf Location" and choose "King Reference."

  • Try more than one encyclopedia: An encyclopedia of history might provide additional useful information not found in an encyclopedia of religion.
