Why use Reference Resources?

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:

  • Learn about a subject that is new to you
  • Identify a topic for an essay
  • Compile some search terms when looking for journal articles
  • Dictionaries
