Background Information

Reference sources are invaluable.  They provide the following types of information on virtually any topic:

  • Reliable background information;
  • Factual overviews;
  • Articles written by subject experts;
  • Dates, timelines, events, people related to your topic;
  • Statistics;
  • A list of further readings, normally found at the end of encyclopedia articles.  Use these references as a springboard for further research.

Reference sources may be found in REF (main level) OR in the regular collection (ground and upper levels).


Print reference (REF) sources are located on the main level of the library.
