Reference sources may contain citations to other publications or  primary sources.  Look under the Background Information tab. For example the Oxford Bibliographies Online series has annotated bibliographies complied by scholars in the field. Identify the useful titles, then search for them in the UTL catalogue.

Bibliographies in scholarly books often list additional sources consulted on a topic. Look at the list of references in your textbook and assigned course readings

Footnotes in books and journal articles refer to the sources used by the author to support the discussion in the publication. Search for them in the UTL catalogue.
