Modern Languages & Literatures: Reference Resources

Reference Sources

A really great way to start researching a new topic is by reading an overview or in-depth background information.  One of the (many) great things about reference works is that they are written by scholars in the field and often include references to additional relevant secondary and primary sources. They are a great way to begin compiling a preliminary research bibliography.
