RFERENCE SOURCES:

Reference sources such as dictionaries, encyclopaedias, directories, Gazettes, almanacs, atlases, etc. are research tools that can help you for your paper or project. Reference sources provide answers to specific questions, such as brief facts, statistics, and technical instructions; provide background information; or direct you to additional information sources. In most libraries, reference sources do not circulate and are located in a separate reference collection. This practice makes reference sources readily available and easily accessible.

Reference sources are designed to be consulted rather than read through. Its design is generally dependent on the type of information and treatment provided. There are different types of reference sources available that cover practically every subject. Although the term reference is frequently used, reference sources can be books, serials, on-line databases or the Internet. A large part of using reference sources well is choosing the right one.

In spite of wide variety sources available, reference sources can be categorized into a handful of groups. Think about the kind of information you need and how you will use it. If you are unsure which reference tool is best suited to your information need, a reference librarian will be able to assist you.
