Why Encyclopedias and Dictionaries?

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference works are often the best way to start a research project, to get essential information from top researchers and to find the most important works in topic bibliographies.

This page lists focused reference works on countries and topics. Most of these are print encyclopedias on the second floor of the library.
