Bibliographies identify research that has been done on various subjects; they often cite primary materials that are available in manuscript or printed form. Graduate students must consult these works in order to avoid missing significant materials that may not be in this library. Undergraduates will also discover that using these tools will help them make better use of this collection, because bibliographies often bring together, in one list, material that may be scattered throughout the library, in books, articles, or government documents.
