About Reference Sources

Reference sources (encyclopedias, catalogs, dictionaries etc.) can be useful to get an overview of topics you may be interested in researching and to develop your research question. The more background information you have on a topic of interest, the more you will be able to think of promising research questions.  These reference sources, in addition to academic journals and magazines, are a good place to start looking for film reviews.
