Physics: Find Reference Sources + Schaum's Outlines

Featuring Okanagan College Library resources for physics

About reference sources

Reference sources include encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, and other online or print "books". You might want to consult one or more of them when you're first starting your research, especially if the topic you are researching is unfamiliar to you. They can be excellent sources of factual information, concepts, theories, definitions, terminology and references to other, more in-depth, sources of information.

Some of the sources listed on this page are links to online resources, while others are books that are located in one or more campus libraries at Okanagan College.
