What are reference sources?

Reference sources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, etc.) can help you get an overview of your topic. They can give you access to in-depth, authoritative articles on your topic and help you identify essential readings in the field. They are also useful for clarifying terms or concepts that you are less familiar with, and for identifying keywords to use when searching for more information.
