Resource Guide for Gerontology

Provides an overview of resources at the Dewey Library to assist in getting started with gerontology research.


Handbooks provide an overview of the major topics and areas of scholastic inquiry in a given subject area. The information is more focused and in depth than what is covered in an encyclopedia. Consult a handbook when: you need to understand a concept covered in class in greater detail or when an encyclopedia does not provide enough of an overview for your topic.
