Use these books (and other reference books), located in the Reference Collection on the first floor of the library, as a starting place for your research. Reference books are a good place to find background information on your research and to become familiar with the concepts and terminology associated with your topic.
To locate discipline-specific reference books, do an advanced search for your general topic (world music, latin america, etc) limiting your search to Location: HU-Reference.
