Background Literature Resources

Why use background or tertiary resources?

  1.  Learn important terms, notable scholars or works, and more information about a topic.
  2.  Bibliographies, further reading, and works cited sections can lead you to secondary sources you can use in your research.
  3.  It's a quick overview of a theme, work, author, or other topic, which can save you time!
