Begin your research with the reference works listed below. Use reference works legitimately to track down background articles authored by literary scholars; choose and/or refine your research topic; identify disciplinary terms, an important consideration in "keyword" searches of library databases such as JSTOR; and find both autobiographies and relevant, high-impact secondary criticisms. For example, cite a secondary journal article found in the "further reading" section of an encyclopedia article.
