Getting Started

Encyclopedias provide wonderful scholarly summaries/ overviews of topics.

  • Sometimes the author of the entry was asked to write because he or she is an expert on the topic - so look for other works he or she has written

  • Reviewing the bibliography, you may find a list of helpful articles.
