Using this guide

In addition to books, here are some other types of library resources you may want to strategically target:

  • Academic subject-specific encyclopedias provide summaries of information and suggest further readings.
  • Handbooks provide background or "how to" information about research methodologies or professional topics.
  • In journals, primary source articles present original scholarly work, and they are often peer-reviewed. Also in journals, review articles (not to be confused with book reviews) summarize findings of all relevant publications into one coherent view of the topic.
  • Theses or dissertations often provide thorough literature reviews on their topic.
