Guide for undergraduates writing a paper or doing research in either physical or human geography.

Geography Encyclopedias and Dictionaries

Every discipline has its special vocabulary. You have access to a number of geography encyclopedias and dictionaries that can both give you ideas for topics and help you understand vocabulary, theory, and methods in the context of geographic studies. These are useful resources when starting a research paper or looking for clarification on a theory or term you have encountered in your class readings.
