Finding Background Information

Conducting research is a complex process.  Developing a list of terms and relationships among those terms is part of developing a research strategy.  Reading background information may help you refine the questions you ask and may lead you to related questions as well.

Credo Reference is a good place to start.  

Reference Universe indexes the contents of 20,000+ print and electronic reference titles and links to Allegheny Library holdings.


Additional Reference Titles to Consider

Reference books are a special subset of Pelletier's collection. Here you will find specialized  dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, and other materials that provide authoritative background information on your topic. We also have some reference  "books" in electronic form. Here are some relevant  titles for your FS class
