Provide Link to Reference Books

Providing direct access to Gale Virtual Reference Library

Why provide access to this source?

When a student begins to brainstorm an idea for a research topic, it is a good idea to a solid working knowledge about a topic.  Consulting a subject specific encyclopedia will provide an introduction to a topic.  The main use of an encyclopedia is to provide a broad overview of a chosen subject or topic. An encyclopedia can introduce language specific to the research process. This can provide a student with the appropriate language and terminology to help them identify keywords and design a research question.
