It may feel really overwhelming to choose a research topic. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
In addition to the sources suggested below, you may search for reference sources available through the Columbia libraries, using CLIO. For reference works like dictionaries, thesauri, and bibliographies, try a Catalog Search with keywords (i.e. encyclopedia AND "Harlem Renaissance") and limit to the desired format. You can also use the Subject (Genre) box on the left side of the results page to narrow down results to a specific genre of source.
If you are interested in looking up a term, name, concept, or other keyword or phrase, try a CLIO Articles Search with the term(s) you have in mind, and once the results page appears, find the Content Type box on the left side of the screen and limit to "Reference."
