Companions and Handbook Series

A number of publishers have series of what are called "companions" or "handbooks." These books take a topic within a large field and provide a range of articles covering multiple aspects of that topic. We purchase many of these companions as e-books but some are only available in print. Below you'll find either a link directly to the series or links to browse through the various titles in a series through the Franklin catalog. You'll find the link to an individual e-book in the Franklin catalog.

Databases for Articles, Chapters, Books
