LESSON 5 - Miscellaneous Resources
DirectoriesAnother general reference source which you can consult for information related to your Holocaust topic (or any other topic) is the Encyclopedia of Associations. In the Macdonald DeWitt Library it is in the Reference area at REF 060 E56. It is not really an encyclopedia but a directory of organizations arranged by category. Use the index first. It is the most effective way to discover the number of organizations and associations related to the Holocaust in general and Holocaust survivors in particular.
There is an organization or association for almost every topic. Click here for examples of other directory type publications commonly found in reference collections.
You can also find directories on the Internet. The most common are telephone directories and business directories, but there are directories of organizations as well.
Let's practice finding information in Idealist.org, an online database of nonprofit organizations.
