Reference Books

Reference sources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases) are a good place to begin your research, as they provide concise introductions to topics and often cite longer, more authoritative research works on the topic. Use them to:

  • explore topics for research
  • get background information
  • explain unfamiliar ideas

Tip: keep an eye out for important words and phrases to try in your keyword searches.
