Human and Organizational Development Resources (HOD): Background Information for HOD Tracks

Reference Books

Reference books are specialized materials designed to produce information on a specific topic. They provide a good starting point when you are trying to define or locate a topic.


Why use reference books for HOD courses?

Starting an HOD research project can be a very unnerving process especially if you are working with an unfamiliar topic. Reference books are a wonderful place to get background information. These specialized sources can help you grasp your topic in more general terms and can assist you in  laying the foundation of your assignment.

 Please contact me if you would like to locate a reference source for your assignment.
