A guide for UC students and staff

Why use Reference sources?

Encyclopedias, dictionaries and handbooks are excellent sources for background material on historical and political events, literary authors and works, film, society and culture.

Use them to

  • check out something your lecturer said
  • refine an essay topic
  • compile a list of search terms for further research
