World History Introduction
This is only a partial list of the resources that are available at Morgan Library, so it is really important to ask for help if you are not finding what you need. Ask at the Help Desk if you need additional help. The World Wide Web resources fall under the Libraries' and University's Disclaimers.
Encyclopedias can be a great place to start your research, get an overview of your topic, or help you narrow your area of focus. Morgan Library has a number of encyclopedia sets that may be useful to you as you begin your research. Encyclopedias are located in the Reference collection, so they may not be checked out. General encyclopedias can also be extremely useful.
