Major E-Book Encyclopedias

The Washington and Lee University Library recently acquired online access to three new multi-volume encyclopedias which are likely to be landmarks in their fields for years to come.
Each of these electronic books is accessible to W&L researchers from both on-campus and off-campus locations. The links below take you to records in Annie, the library catalog.  Additional links may appear in course guides and elsewhere in our Web site.
