Why Use a Reference Book?

Reference books are designed to provide you with an introduction to a given topic. In other words, they serve as a starting point for students who don't already possess a foundational knowledge of that topic. Though reference books don't necessarily get cited in research papers, they certainly can play an important role in helping you early on in your research process.
