Reference materials, like dictionaries, encyclopedias, and source books provide general overviews of topics. This is a great place to start your information gathering, once you have a topic.
Use the drop-down menu to the right to select a database. With the database open, type in your topic keyword and search. Looking at your results, refine, and capture useful reference entries by saving the link or emailing it to yourself, and finally, be sure to enter in the citation information into Noodlebib.
Noodlebib Tip: For an eReference item select "Database," for a print reference book select "Print/In Hand." Then select "Reference." Fill in as many of the fields as you can using the source.
