REL 112: Studies in Religion: Reference Works

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.

I love meeting with students and faculty to talk about your research, including any issues you have - or even if you just want to brainstorm. There are lots of ways to reach me. Email me with questions or use the old fashioned phone number below to contact me. Or stop by my office hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:30 - 11:30 (Library 215 - ask at the front desk if you need directions).
