Online Reference Sources

Reference sources are good places to begin research on a topic.  Articles and entries in these publications often are written by scholars in the field and provide basic facts about a topic, as well as definitions of related terms.

Articles in reference sources can also lead to additional sources on a topic through bibliographies and other lists of recommended readings.
