These are books and websites that will help you gain some background information on your topic, and they can be vital to your understanding of the subject and for topic development.
Use online databases as you would a print periodical index. Items retrieved from these databases have been evaluated for content and indexed by subject librarians, unlike items retrieved from a search engine.
These websites have been evaluated by the librarians at W&L for relevancy, content, and objectivity. They include tools to help with your research as well as useful supplemental materials.
