Getting Started: Reference Sources

Trying to figure out what all the fuss is about? References sources like encyclopedias and subject-specific dictionaries provide general overviews of complex issues.

(NOTE: You can't cite reference sources in your poster. But these resources can help you understand the issues so that you sound like a genius when it's time to do your poster instead of sounding like...well, let's just say...not a genius.) 

Going Further: Periodicals

Hint:  Books (either in print or electronic format) are some of the best sources to find broader context and background information.  Use the following sources to find them!

A Comprehensive View: Books & Journals
