Getting Started

It's often a good idea to begin with broad information on a topic, and move to more narrowly focused books and articles as you develop your topic. 

Reference Universe can help. It locates useful articles in JMU's reference collection, both printed and online, by searching back-of-the-book indexes and article titles in many encyclopedias. It then retrieves the page numbers where there are articles on your topic, or links to pages where articles begin.
