Subject Encyclopedias for French History and Culture

Subject encyclopedias are excellent starting points for your research. Scholars write the entries, which typically offer not only an overview of the topic (the who, what, where, and when), but also an account of how experts and others have interpreted the matter over time.  

Start with these subject encyclopedias and branch out as needed. 

Print encyclopedias and dictionaries are located on the first floor of Collins Library.
