A guide to select article databases, library resources, links, and tips for researchers to succeed in finding, accessing, and managing quality information sources.

How Should I Use Reference Tools?

Reference sources are excellent means of identifying and exploring research topics, getting background information, building vocabulary, and identifying an initial bibliography. 

Dictionaries and Thesauri: Find definitions, translations, and equivalent terms to help you understand the vocabulary of your topic.

Encyclopedias: Articles provide summaries on your topic, discuss key authors in the field, and provide useful bibliographies.
