Reference Books for African History

Reference books, located primarily on the 1st floor of Paley Library but also online and in the new Library Depository, serve as excellent starting points for research. Two good reasons to begin your research with reference books:

  1. Scholarly encyclopedias help users contextualize their topics, thus setting the foundation for the next steps in the research process;
  2. Bibliographies, which can take the form of whole books or brief "Further Reading" sections after encyclopedia articles, advance research by pointing the user to relevant primary and secondary sources.
