Resources to Use in Your Research

Reference books -- mainly scholarly encyclopedias and subject-specific dictionaries. 

Books -- for broad coverage of a subject at a moderate to deep level.

Articles -- from periodicals (newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals); to hone in on the specifics, and include updated knowledge.

Websites -- include a lot of information, but it's easy for web authors to fake expertise. Evaluation is essential! Click on the Websites tab to search some recommended websites.
