Computer Science & Information Technology: Basics

A guide to resources, online and in print, related to computers, programming, and computer information technology.

Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, and Other Reference Sources

REFERENCE WORKS: Generally, the category of works we call "reference" includes atlases, almanacs, bibliographies, dictionaries, directories, encyclopedias, guidebooks, handbooks, indexes, manuals,  yearbooks—materials we "refer" to rather than read entirely. Use these for definitions, codes, standards, and topic overviews or background information.

General Overviews

See the Tech Toolbox Library Guide for an excellent overview of working with a variety of computer-related technologies.  Look for "beginner" books for introductions to topics.
