    How to use "Reference work" in context?

    A reference work is a compilation of sources that is used as a resource by specialists in a particular subject. The sources are typically divided into two categories:primary and secondary. Primary sources are the original documents or recordings that provide the information. Secondary sources are any sources that used the information from the primary sources to produce new information or to expand on the original information.

    Reference works can be divided into two categories: monographs and anthologies. Monographs are typically much larger than anthologies and typically focus on one specific subject. Anthologies, on the other hand, are typically much smaller and may focus on multiple subjects.
