Listed on this page are key reference books that provide a general overview of a topic or help identify synonyms, related terms, or basic data. These sources often include references and lists of further readings. These resources are very helpful when you're trying to come up with an idea for a topic for a paper or project.
Because the library is currently closed, resources on this page will be limited to only those reference materials that are available online. For the future, keep in mind that there are also a wide range of print reference materials available in the library.
