Selected Reference Resources

Reference works include encyclopedias, research handbooks, and bibliographies. Reference works offer overviews of a topic and help to place it in context. They can be especially useful in providing you with keywords with which to construct your database and catalog searches.  Some of our library's reference works are online, others are in print in the reference collection.

Another advantage: they often include bibliographies of primary and secondary sources.
