Finding Specific Types of Resources

You can find a specific type of resource (such as a commentary, film, concordance, or dictionary). 

Try searching Primo for the genre of source you need plus your topic, using keywords like 

Matthew commentary, Genesis commentary, Greek dictionary (or lexicon or word study) or 

Don Quixote film, Emma movie, Pride and Prejudice DVD, or 

MLA Handbook, Turabian Style book, etc.  

Many works for finding quick facts & definitions can be found in our reference section on the 1st floor or in course reserves at the front desk.

If you are online, narrow your search in Primo to “eBooks” or “reference entries" under "Material Type."

For quick definitions and facts (encyclopedias and dictionaries of academic quality), try Oxford and Credo reference databases in this list.

Citation style manuals are listed and linked here.
