Reference Resources

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Use reference materials for background information for your topic, or to find good keywords to use when searching databases.  These are dictionaries, encyclopedias, guides, bibliographies, indexes and abstracts.

To find reference materials in Omni, perform a KEYWORD/SUBJECT search
       for example: english literature AND dictionar*

Encyclopedias and dictionaries are very useful to get an overview of topics and explanations of key terms and concepts of a subject area.
