Using Encyclopedias

Encyclopedias are often a fantastic place to begin your research, as they provide detailed overviews and definitions of key concepts within their field of study, allowing you to consider and review possible topics before fully diving into them. Though you should always be sure to check your assignment or with your professor if they are permitted as usable source, even those that aren't should contain references to books and scholarly materials that are likely usable resources for your assignment!
