Reference Sources

Subject-specific dictionaries are useful for those working on cross-displinary projects and students new to a discipline.

Specialized encyclopedias provide a wealth of information, such as basic, background information on a topic, bibliographies of articles, books, and other materials on a topic, and images, sounds, and graphics to add interest to your presentations and posters.

Handbooks provide standard information, including tables of data, citations to literature, and brief synopses of topics.
