Reference resources like these are ideal for a very broad overview of a topic. This is a good starting place if you're investigating a place, historical time period, type of theatre, or theme that's new to you.
Books and ebooks can provide a more in-depth look at a topic, place, design style, or historical moment. You can search our digital and in-library collections simultaneously by title, author, subject, or keyword via LibrarySearch. Click Advanced Search for additional search criteria (like material type, language, year, etc.).
You can also use LibrarySearch to search across a large collection of our library databases by entering keywords into the search box below, or search within a specific database from the linked list below.
If you're not finding what you're looking for, take a second to think about the keywords you're using. Getting too many results or results that aren't relevant? Your keyword(s) might be too general -- Try using greater specificity and/or more search terms. Example: Instead of Russian architecture, try the more specific geographic term (Moscow architecture) or add more keywords to narrow your results (Russian dome construction).
