Online Subject Encyclopedias-Good for Background Information

These are collections of subject specific online encyclopedias.  Unlike World Book, Britannica, or Wikipedia, they usually cover subjects based on their relevance to a very specific concept or frame of reference rather than trying to address the topic broadly over multiple areas of interest.  For instance, all the entries in the Encyclopedia of World Poverty (2006) would be written to address some aspect of poverty or socioecomomic status, rather than trying to address the topics in very broad and sometimes unrelated ways.

Subject encyclopedias are scholarly sources.

Books to Help with your cultural assessment assignments:

List  of books that in the WSU catalog address culture, ethnicity, and/or family.  Limited to 2007-present.  


  • You may want to click on the title of the book to view the table of contents.  It is not always obvious from the book title that they will be relevant to cultural and/or family assessment.
  • This is still a very long list. Adding more specific keywords to the search will shorten the list.
