Search Tips

- In the box on the left, read the titles of the online encyclopedias.  Move your mouse over each title to learn a little bit more.  Which ones will be best for your topic?

- Since encyclopedia articles focus on basic, general information about a topic, what you type in the search box should also be general:

YES:  cold war

YES:  cold war AND effects

NO:  effects of the cold war on the american lifestyle in the 1950s

- Salem History Encyclopedias is a good choice for many topics, including polio, music and fashion.
