Getting Started

This guide lists resources for doing basic research. These reference sources can provide you with an excellent starting point for conducting your research.

Reference sources include encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, handbooks and a whole host of other material.

Other sources can be found by searching the ALADIN Catalog for books and the databases for journal articles. If you need more help in finding information, please contact a reference librarian.
