WHY DOES BACKGROUND INFORMATION MATTER?
Looking at background information can:
Help you get a basic understanding or overview of your topic and providing foundational knowledge
Help you identify important dates, places, themes, people, and other stakeholders
Can be a good way to establish key words and/or search terms (start a list!)
Remember that although it is helpful, instructors do not always consider reference resources a viable source for your research. Make sure you know how they feel about it before you cite these kinds of sources.
