  • Thesaurus: a dictionary with synonyms and antonyms.
  • Periodicals include magazines, newspapers, scientific journals, and other materials that are published daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • Almanac: A usually annual reference book composed of various lists, tables, and often brief articles relating to a particular field or many general fields.
  • Atlas: A book of maps. It may also contain information about a land region, such as its climate and terrain, latitude and longitude, topography, population figures, elevations, settlement patterns, agricultural patterns, and transportation routes.
  • Directory: a list of information with names and addresses, like a fan club list.
  • People: great sources of oral history and people are primary sources.

Searching for information: Key words
  • Key words: Entries in encyclopedias are arranged alphabetically by key words.
  • Try to narrow the focus of your search by beginning with the most specific key word. (For example, rock music will be listed under R, because the key word is rock.) If the word you choose is too specific, broaden your focus a little at a time.
