Why use an Encyclopedia?

Encyclopedias are great places to start your research, especially when you are unfamiliar with a topic.  Encyclopedias can:  

  • provide a succinct overview of a topic written by experts
  • identify and define terms used in the field
  • help in narrowing a topic
  • guide you to other closely related topics
  • provide references to other works on the topic that can be used to supplement your research
