Reference Resources

Reference resources are a great way for you to get a brief concept of a person, place, thing, or event.  Using a reference resource can often tell you the main events of a person's life or the main parts of a battle.  While your professor may not want you citing a general encyclopedia such as our Encyclopedia Britannica, some may allow you to cite more subject specific resources as described in the links below.
