Background Sources

Why You Want Background Sources

 Don't know much about your topic? Not sure where to start your research?

Reference sources (encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.) are an excellent way of getting background on your topic, finding key people, understanding key concepts and locating other readings.

Use quotation marks around phrases, e.g. "intimate partner violence"
