Guides and bibliographies provide lists, sometimes annotated, of good books and, sometimes, articles, to read on a topic or era. By using one of more of the sources below, the researcher may be able to gather references to specific authors and titles to check in our online catalog much more quickly than searching the online catalog directly by keyword or L.C. subject heading. Be mindful of the date of publication of the bibliography or guide, though. Some are older. Seek more recently written books and articles as well to gain an up-to-date perspective on your topic. Use the indexes in the Periodical Indexes section of this guide to find recently written articles.
