Agricultural Studies: Background/General Info

A University of Lethbridge Guide to Agricultural Studies Resources

About Reference

Reference materials - such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, textbooks, etc - can provide a good overview of a subject and lead you to further related resources, and are a great place to start your research.

Search Dictionaries and Encyclopedias for background information


A good way to get started on a topic is to look up some general information. This can help you narrow your topic, or generally inform you on the subject. This above search box will search the Library's dictionaries, encyclopedias, and other reference-type books. Note that the results page will list entries in the reference sources rather than the reference sources themselves.
