Encyclopedias can be a good way to start your research. Encyclopedia entries can include:
- a historical context of your topic
- names of key researchers in the field
- explanations of theories and key concepts
- lists of articles and books about a topic
When you are ready to search library databases for articles or books, try using some of the key terms from the encyclopedia entry discussing your topic.
