English 260 - African American Literature: Reference Resources

Why Reference Books?

Reference books provide you with background information on a topic, important dates, individuals and terms. In other words, after reading one of these entries, you should have a better idea of where to focus your research and the important topics/concepts/persons that you want to research further. If you don't have a topic, these resources can provide a good starting point because you can browse them for potential topics.
