Reference Sources

A reference source can be a great tool for uncovering backgrounds and contexts of topics, finding names and dates, diving into etymologies and histories of words, finding recommended readings on a topic, and more. You can think of a reference source as a pathway to other sources. 

To search across a range of reference sources that we have access to, try a CLIO Articles search with the keyword/key phrase you are looking up. Limit your search results to "Reference" using the "Content Type" box. You can also check out the specialized reference sources listed below.
