Reference Sources

Reference sources provide factual information (e.g., dictionaries and statistical yearbooks), an overview of a topic (e.g, encyclopedias), or a guide to in-depth research on a topic (e.g., bibliographies and indices). These sources can be useful for developing your topic. As you read reference sources, ask yourself, "What do I already know," "What do I need to know?" and "What search terms should I use in my research?"
