What are reference resources and how should I use them?

Two methods to find reference articles

Reference articles - please see the video above for more information on what a reference article is and how it can help you! 

Here are two different ways to find reference articles.

1. Using a reference article-only database

You can use a database like Gale Virtual Reference Library or Credo

Find it on the library homepage, for example:

find GVRL on Databases A-Z dropdown menu

Search with your keywords, and select an article from your results.


2. Use OneSearch to find reference articles 

In OneSearch, to limit your results to reference articles, use the "resource type" filter on the right and select "Reference Resources".
