Various forms of encyclopedias can be a good first introduction to a subject. Both encyclopedias and dictionaries provide basic definitions of terms. Here you can find examples of important concepts within a discipline and can use them as search words when doing a literature search in databases. There are both general and subject-specific encyclopedias. Sometimes articles and entries in reference books and encyclopedias contain a list of references for further reading.

Down below you will find examples of encyclopedias and dictionaries within you subject areas.
