Using Reference Works

Reference books are excellent tools, especially when you are beginning a research project.  They give broad overviews, orienting you to the larger context in which your topic occurs.  They can provide definitions and give you ideas for search words.   They might also clue you in to the major thinkers in your area.  Sometimes they provide resources for further reading, giving you an instant source list.  Reference books are on the main floor of the library facing Beck Hall.
