Responding to COVID-19: Due to COVID-19, all University Libraries locations are closed. You can chat and email with us Monday through Thursday 7am-7pm, Friday 7am-6pm, Saturday 11am-6pm, and Sunday 1pm-6pm. We are not currently accepting any new hold/pickup or scanning requests for physical items. See details on library changes and support.
Finding background information is an important part of any research project, and encyclopedias are great place to start. Your school library will have a variety of encyclopedias and other background resources, but you can also use Sage Knowledge to find useful information on your topic.
