What are Reference Resources?

Reference resources can be general or discipline-specific. Examples include:

  • encyclopedias
  • dictionaries
  • biographical sources
  • guides
  • handbooks
  • manuals

They often contain foundational information, such as:

  • definitions of terms
  • verification of factual information
  • overviews on your topic
  • background information
  • research and writing support

They are useful to consult during the early stages of your research and can help you to:

  • learn the terminology appropriate for your topic
  • understand your topic's broad context
  • establish a coherent organizational structure for your work
