Using Encyclopedias

Subject-specific encyclopedias are a great first stop in your search for information. They will help to put your topic into context and will introduce underlying principles, theories, and facts about your topic.  They will also provide references to the seminal work on a topic. Pay attention to the terms you find and use them to refine your searching strategy.  Encyclopedias are generally not appropriate sources to cite in a research paper.
