Do what all good researchers do, refer to a good encyclopedia, dictionary etc. as needed. We do have many online nowadays, see our Reference guide. But there are many good print titles as well; here is a small sample of those that have been used just recently.
All come recommended by our friend pictured here ;-)
- American Presidential Campaigns and Elections
- Asian American Short Story Writers
- Great Women in Sports
- New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians
- Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History
- S&P's Industry Surveys
