Online Reference Resources

OFF-CAMPUS DATABASE ACCESS:  When accessing the databases from off campus, you will be asked to input your MyPima username and password.

WHY REFERENCE RESOURCES?  Reference resources, like encyclopedias, are great places to begin your research.  They will provide you with basic facts about a topic, and summarize important issues related to the topic.  Move from reference resources to more detailed resources - books & academic articles - once you have a clear research topic or question in mind.
