Psyc 210 - Cognitive Psychology: Reference (Background Info)

What are reference tools?

"Reference sources are authoritative works that help you locate information about people, facts, and ideas. These sources can help you find the date of an important event, major achievements of an individual or organization, or a definition of a term or concept. These books are often used to find specific facts, rather than written to be read cover-to-cover..."

The Bothell Campus Library has reference materials online and in print. Most of our newer reference sources are online. Older print reference sources can be found in the third-floor stacks related to their subject matter, and most of these reference works can be checked out.
