Value of encyclopedias

Encyclopedias are great for:

  •  locating authoritative, high quality information

  •  choosing a topic

  •  educating yourself quickly

  •  gaining background information easily (major ideas, theories, events, people)

  •  identifying variant spellings, vocabulary, terminology

  •  finding a bibliography (list of selected, important  references for further reading)
