Reference Material

This is the section to find definitions and biographies. One way to find definitions is to use the Advanced Search function of Omni and set the "Material Type" to "Reference Entries." For example this search for "racism" brings up reference entries on racism in the encyclopedias and handbooks available through Leddy.

The resources below are a great place to start for providing precise definitions for terms used within your thesis, and elsewhere in your paper. These resources will not count as scholarly articles for your paper however, they can still be illuminating, and if used must be included in your bibliography. 

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation Glossary of Terms

The SAGE handbook of prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination

The SAGE handbook of race and ethnic studies

Dictionary of Race, Ethnicity & Culture
