Thank you for your question. I have several questions, however, that might help us guide you in finding the resources that you need. For example:

  • How many resources must you use? Do they need to be resources from the Library's databases?
  • What is the focus of your paper - are you describing a visit or planning a visit as your topic?
  • Are you focusing on a specific zoo?

At this point, I would like to suggest that you review the Library's online encyclopedias, which can be found at:

If you connect directly to the Britannica Academic (formerly called Encyclopedia Britannica) and enter the search term zoo, you will get a list of zoos with brief descriptions of each.

You might also search Credo Reference - All Subjects Search, another set of online encyclopedias, also using the search term zoo.

I hope this info gets you started. Feel free to call or continue emailing or chatting. Kellie Benson Librarian
