The image at left is a book cover. Encyclopedias are a good place to start in order to get background info, brainstorm, and find topic ideas. I typed in vegetarianism, I found this ebook example. You can search within the book for vegan.
Some encyclopedias are available on the 3rd and 4th floors and can be checked out. Others are on the 1st floor and cannot be checked out. Many encyclopedias are online. Use the RIT Libraries Catalog below to find encyclopedias and books on your chosen topic. When looking for books, try the subject or keyword search.
After searching the RIT Libraries Catalog, if you cannot find what you need from our collection, look at the right side column and click on Connect NY. You can borrow books for free from university libraries in NY state.
