Why Use Encyclopedias?
Reference works help you by:
- providing a quick overview of a topic,
- identifying key questions that can shape your research,
- pointing you towards other sources on the topic.
Check the Bibliography
Reference articles typically end with a bibliography or works cited, which you can use to find key books and articles on the topic.
