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:
