Peace and Conflict Studies: Reference

Reference sources

Reference sources include encyclopedias, dictionaries, annuals and many others that are not meant to be read "cover to cover" but consulted for quick and factual information. Current and reliable reference sources provide overviews and introductions to terminologies and issues of a topic. The Online Reference Shelf is the full directory of reference resources at University of Waterloo Libraries.
