The Catholic Encyclopedia (1913) held in print in the reference collection and held online open-access as New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia contains information about the Catholic Church in the early 20th century, following Vatican I. It is often used by individuals but it is not necessarily current. For more current, post-Vatican II, information consult the New Catholic Encyclopedia.
This is held in part in print in the reference collection, and in toto, including supplements, as an electronic encyclopedia. You must be logged in to view online reference items. To find it Please go to the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Search the Catalog. If searching by title, do not enter the words "The" or "A" or "An" at the beginning of the title. If searching by author, enter last name followed by first name.
There is also a link to the New Catholic Encyclopedia under the Catholic tab on the Religion libguide. The libguide can also be accessed under Guides & Tutorials on the University Library homepage.
