      Encyclopedias

      • Credo Reference
        Hundreds of authoritative dictionaries, encyclopedias, fact books, guides, companions and more from respected publishers across dozens of major subject areas.
      • Encyclopedia of Jewish American Popular Culture
        This unique encyclopedia chronicles American Jewish popular culture, past and present in music, art, food, religion, literature, and more. Over 150 entries, written by scholars in the field, highlight topics ranging from animation and comics to Hollywood and pop psychology. Without the profound contributions of American Jews, the popular culture we know today would not exist. Where would music be without the music of Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand, humor without Judd Apatow and Jerry Seinfeld, film without Steven Spielberg, literature without Phillip Roth, Broadway without Rodgers and Hammerstein.
      • Encyclopedia Judaica (2nd ed., 2007)
        (Trexler Library Reference Collection 296.03 E56j)
        Signed entries by invited contributors. Good for topic-finding and topic-narrowing.
