Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Reference materials are excellent resources for background information on your topic, as well as a way to find good keywords to use when searching databases.  Materials such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, guides, bibliographies, indexes and abstracts can be found by performing a KEYWORD search and adding dictionar* or encyclop* to limit the results.
                  example  classic* AND dictionar*

Or use subject heading such as:

Civilization, Classical
Religion - Encyclopedias
Antiquities--Dictionaries
