FYE157 / HY109 Civilization in East Asia: Getting Started

Finding Topic Overviews

Encyclopedias and other reference books provide excellent historical overviews that will help you put topics -- and the historians writing about them -- into context. The resources are a great way to

  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Narrow an existing topic
  • Glean keywords for catalog and database searches
  • Leverage bibliographies for the next stage of your research

Take a few minutes to browse the history reference books. Call numbers for Asian history usually begin with DS. For a detailed list, check out the Library of Congress Classification Outlines for World History. Tutt Library also has electronic encyclopedias available though our Online Reference shelf.
