|Reference sources are books, web sites, and other materials which provide facts and information. Any non-fiction book could be a reference source. However, commonly used reference sources include dictionaries, thesauri, encyclopedia, atlases, almanacs, and directories. Many of these reference sources are now available online as well as in the traditional printed media.
Directions: Select the reference source you would use to find the information required in each question. Go ahead and use the reference source and write your answer on a separate sheet of paper. School or local libraries carry the common reference sources that you may need.
