College 101: Find Background Information

Reference Sources

Reference sources are a good place to find background information on your topic. Many reference entries also have reading lists that can lead you to additional resources on your topic.

When accessing WOIS: If accessing from off-campus, you will need a site key to access most services and create a personal account.  During open hours, contact the Campus Library for your access key, unique to either UW Bothell or Cascadia College. You can also contact your Career Center for support.
