Reference resources include, but are not limited to, publications such as: dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, biographies, directories, and atlases. They are published in print or electronically and are often discipline-specific.
Reference resources are especially useful to:
- learn about a subject that is new to you
- confirm a fact
- learn definitions
- identify or focus a topic for an essay or assignment
- compile search terms and key names for use when searching databases
|We recommend reference resources as the first place to look
when learning about or researching a new topic.
