Five new Oxford encyclopedias have been added to the library’s online collections:
- Encyclopedia of Economic History,
- Encyclopedia of the Modern World,
- Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States,
- Encyclopedia of Social Work,
- Encyclopedia of Evolution.
To get to these encyclopedias, from the library home page (library.unk.edu) move the pointer over Research Tools and click on the Databases & E-Resources link. The encyclopedias are listed under “O” and “E” in the alphabetical list, and under the various subject areas. All of these contain hundreds of valuable, authoritative entries on topics in their respective areas, and many entries include valuable bibliographies—lists of other books or articles on the topic. These e-books may be keyword searched individually by title or by searching the Oxford Reference Online database which encompasses many more quality Oxford titles.
