The UTEP Library has over a million books and more than 300 databases. Here are a few places to start, but you should explore other sources on your own or with a librarian, who will be glad to help you.
- The Library catalog, for books, e-books, films, and other materials
- Reference books. Start with a specialized encyclopedia to get an overview of your topic and to gather key names and specialized vocabulary. A few are listed below.
- Online encyclopedias. Several databases are collections of specialized encyclopedias and reference works. Gale Virtual Reference Library, Cambridge Histories Online, and Oxford Reference Online are good databases to try.
