FTS: Nero – Emperor, Artist, and Anti-Christ: Reference Collection

The Reference Collection: What is it good for?

The reference collection on the main floor of Gustavus Library is a great first stop on your journey towards learning about any topic in Classical history. Reference works such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, and bibliographies can offer a brief overview of a wide variety of topics you may be interested in researching, quickly bringing you up-to-speed on the history of research (or historiography) of your chosen topic, pointing the way to other important primary and secondary sources, and allowing you engage in the broader conversation about that topic among historians.

Unlike books in the general collection, books in the reference collection don't circulate and can't be checked out -- that way they're always ready at hand for anyone in the library who wants to use them!
