Why Use Reference Books
An encyclopedia is a type of reference book. Use a reference book to:
Defineimportant vocabulary words related to your topic,
Finda basic overview and main issues related to your topic,
Findreferences to additional resources, and
Discoverimportant background information related to your topic.
You will typically not use a reference book or encyclopedia as a source in your research. The information in these sources is for your own background knowledge.
