ENG 7 (Wong) - Between the World and Me (Ta-Nehisi Coates)

Reference Materials

Reference materials, like dictionaries, encyclopedias, and source books provide general overviews of topics.  This is a great place to gather information such as:

1. an overview of your topic

2. a summary of your topic

3. keywords or search terms to use later when searching an index of a book, the online catalog, the periodical databases, or the web

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 Noodletools.  

Noodletools 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.
