Tertiary sources assimilate information taken from primary and secondary sources.  The information is usually presented in an easy-to-read, or basic format.
Examples include:

  • encyclopedias (in print or online wikis)
  • fact books 
  • almanacs
  • bibliographies
  • directories
  • biographical sources (like Who's Who; biographies are secondary sources)
  • statistical summaries
