Starter Resources are very broad-based, general resources that are used in the earliest stages of research when the researcher is seeking an overview of a topic or is attempting to narrow an overly broad topic. In the context of college-level research assignments, they are merely gateway resources and as such, should not be used in place of in-depth, substantive sources. See the other tabs for a selection of books, databases, and websites that offer more detailed, focused information.
