PSY101: General Psychology (Carlini): Reference Resources

What is a Reference Resource?

Reference resources are usually encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, manuals and other books that you refer to when wanting to know a definition of a word or concept; a general overview of a topic; specific information about a certain period of time or event in history. For your research assignment, gaining foundational knowledge on your topic will inform you on areas in which researchers are exploring relevant issues and help you to evaluate more scholarly sources.
