Multicultural History: Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, Almanacs

Ethnic History of the United States of America

Where to Start

Use the tabs above to find history reference sources, books, articles from journals and magazines, and Internet resources related to specific ethnic groups.

You may want to begin with general Reference. The category of works we call "reference" includes atlases, almanacs, bibliographies, dictionaries, directories, encyclopedias, guidebooks, handbooks, indexes, manuals, yearbooks—materials we "refer" to rather than read entirely. Go to these for definitions, topic overviews or background information. Reference librarians can help you find these.
