Subject encyclopedias can give you concise overviews of topics, together with lists of sources for further reading. These books are located in the Reference area (1st floor), McWherter Library.
Look for a book using a title or keyword search on your topic.
Use Catalog Classic to find books on your research topic. Try finding books on your subject using key words (such as "instruction" or "curriculum"). Then, when you find a relevant book, click on subject headings in the book record that are related to your topic. For more help with searching the catalog, click here for a video.
In addition, you can find many more books on your research topic by searching for these same subject headings (or key words) in WorldCat, a database containing catalogs of thousands of libraries. You can request books found in WorldCat through Interlibrary Loan, or visit other Memphis academic libraries and check the books out by presenting your U of M card. For more information, you can Ask a Librarian!
