This Resource Letter provides a list of references on liquid crystalline materials emphasizing both their fundamental properties and their practical uses in flat‐panel displays and electro‐optic applications. We have labeled those articles that can be used by students with little or no physics background and no prior knowledge of liquid crystals with an E (elementary), those that require a physics background but can be read by undergraduates with an I (intermediate), and the articles geared towards graduate students and researchers in the field with an A (advanced).
