Reference Sources

Reference sources are a great place to start when researching a topic or just need quick basic information.

What is a Reference Source?

Reference Sources include sources of quick factual information and basic and specialized encyclopedias.  While you would not cite these sources in a college level paper (unless a subject/specialized encyclopedia is requested by the instructor), you can use these sources to generate topic ideas, become more informed or obtain background information on your topic.
