ANS103: Applied Animal Behavior (Forry): Reference Resources

What is a Reference Resource?


Reference resources provide foundational knowledge on a topic, and offer relevant names, dates, facts, figures, and data. Reference sources include encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, manuals, almanacs, and atlases. Encyclopedias are not usually acceptable sources to site in an academic paper, but they are a great place to start for general information that helps you frame your topic.
