Save Time: Start Your Research with a Reference Book

Encyclopedias and other reference books provide succinct overviews that will help you put topics into context. The resources are a great way to

  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Narrow an existing topic
  • Glean keywords for catalog and database searches
  • Leverage bibliographies for the next stage of your research

These resources are reviewed (i.e., "vetted") by a team of editors, whereas anyone can add anything to Wikipedia. Take a few minutes to browse the anthropology reference books, many of which start with the call letters GN.
