Some of the resources below are in print in the ASU Libraries while others are available electronically. Most books or encyclopedic entries contain a bibliography of additional sources that may help in your research.
In searching the ASU Library Catalog for information on a topic most of us begin with a keyword search because we are not looking for a specific book or resource and we do not know the official Library of Congress Subjects. In searching by keyword for information about the Holocaust begin with the word holocaust by itself or in combination with another word[s]. The Catalog automatically inserts the word 'and' between words so you can search using a word string like you do when searching Google: holocaust personal narratives.
