Reference Resources

Begin your research with Reference sources! Reference databases and books provide contextual information about all different topics.  They offer a general understanding that paves the way to a deeper comprehension of a topic. Though great for building background information and filling in information gaps, you should not use them in your final paper.

Listed below are a few reference databases Warner Library subscribes to as well as free reference websites. Be sure to check out the library's large reference book collection located on the main level, in front of the Reference Desk. Make sure to sign into MyAthens if you are located off-campus.
