Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, and Bibliographies

You may use encyclopedias, dictionaries, bibliographies, books, and e-books to find basic information and resources on art, architecture, and artefacts. I will be glad to meet with you and assist you in your research. You may reach out and make an appointment whenever you need assistance.

Books and E-Books

Books can provide a very comprehensive view of a topic, e.g. art history

Search the UL catalog to find books, thesis, DVDs, maps, and more.

  • Start with a keyword search to find a book on your topic
  • When you find a good title, follow the subject headings for more books on the topic


  • Take note of the location of the book (Engineering, Jafet, Medical, Science)
  • Take note of the call number this is how you will locate the book on the shelf (e.g.:J 709.5691:A989m).
  • Take note of the current status: If there is a due date listed instead of "available" that means the book is checked out to another person.  But you can request the book back.
