Ethnic and Gender Studies: Reference

Why use reference tools?

Reference materials generally include dictionaries, encyclopedias, directories or other specialized handbooks. The format may vary; some may be available in print, or some may be available online as eBooks or entries in databases. No matter the format, reference materials provide a quick, yet informative, overview of your subject. They are great to consult when beginning your research. Use them to learn more about people, topics, terminology, and more. Identify keywords that you can use in online searching.
