Getting Started with Reference

Begin your research by consulting reference resources such as: encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks. They provide definitions, background information, introductions, or overviews of topics. This is especially useful to:

  1. Learn about a subject that is new to you
  2. Identify or focus a topic for an essay
  3. Compile some search terms when looking for journal articles

Locate discipline-specific reference books under the "Discipline-Specific Nursing Resources" tab.
