Getting Started

Reference works such as subject encyclopedias can give you an overview of a topic and point you to the most authoritative or influential works on a topic.

Lists of works cited (bibliographies) are an excellent starting point when doing a literature review.

  • Course Readings
    Use the bibliographies, footnotes and references from your course readings to find sources about your artist or architect.
  • Published Bibliographies
    Search your topic and add the word "bibliography" to find a list of published works.  Example: "Frank Lloyd Wright" + bibliography
