Research Guide

Another handy trick

You can also find excellent information by tracing the bibliography of articles you find useful. A bibliography is a list of books, journals or other sources that are referenced to find information. If you discover a well-researched article with the kind of information you need for your project, check out that author’s bibliography at the end of the piece. The bibliography is a ready-made list of articles and can be very useful for further learning.
