What about Wikipedia?
Wikipedia can be edited by anyone, so make sure you use another source to confirm the information you find there. And check with your professor before you cite it as a reference.
Reference Tools: Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, and more
Reference tools such as dictionaries and encyclopedias are good places to start your research because they provide an overview of the topic as well as keywords, dates, and facts.
- Try looking at the bibliography at the end of the entry for a list of other sources such as relevant journal articles and books.
- When you have found books on your topic, look at the books on the shelf nearby to see if they are related to your topic.
