A guide to philosophy resources available from ANU Library.

Reference sources

Reference sources are a great place to begin your research, in particular if you are exploring a new philosophical topic. They can help you to:

  • define your topic;
  • find background information;
  • identify keywords and alternative terms for database searching; and
  • find links to other online resources.   

The following online reference sources are all frequently updated, searchable and contain substantial entries written by philosophers.
