Introduction

Entries in dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks specific to the various disciplines can help to get you started on a topic.  They can

  • give you a sense for the state of a given question (if reasonably current),
  • suggest keywords to try in your searches, and
  • provide a starter bibliography.

See the (somewhat outdated) list of dictionaries and encyclopedias below.

List
