Beginning Your Research Use encyclopedias, handbooks, or dictionaries.<br><br> Overviews or definitions of your topics are presented in concise entries or articles. More in depth analysis of your topic can be obtained from the bibliographies at the end of the articles or entries. The table of contents or index should be consulted for your topic.<br><br> Bibliographies, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, and Handbooks Dictionaries provide brief entries that are quick and helpful sources for the definition or identification of a term, movement, or person. Handbooks and dictionaries can help you throughout your research by providing quick, factual information that you may need to support your ideas. Encyclopedias are also a good place to start, especially if you are unfamiliar with the topic.<br><br> Articles in encyclopedias are often written by recognized authorities and tend to provide established facts and ideas about the topic, its history, basic theories, and important persons who have written related articles. Also, most encyclopedia articles close with a bibliography that may help you to establish your literature search. Dictionaries provide brief entries that are quick and helpful sources for the definition or identification of a term, movement, or person in history.<br><br> While dictionaries are not as broad as encyclopedias, they are particularly useful for choosing proper terminology. Note: When using encyclopedias, first consult the index volume, usually the last volume of the set. This will tell you if your topic has an article devoted entirely to it or if it is discussed within an article on a related subject.<br><br> Circulating books are located in different sections of the library. Please consult the clocation d on the online catalog, then use the directory located at the Reference Desk and by the elevators or ask for assistance.
