Finding Background Information
Reference books, such as dictionaries, encyclopaedias and handbooks are a useful starting point when beginning your research. Dictionaries provide definitions, and help you to understand the terminology. Encyclopaedias provide a general overview of a topic, and may also provide a list of books and journal articles for further reading.
Reference books can be located via a subject search in NEWCAT. For example, 'occupational therapy dictionaries', 'occupational therapy for children handbooks manuals'.
Listed below are some of the major reference works for occupational therapy available online or in the Huxley Library:
