Do you start your research with Wikipedia? Encyclopedias can be a great place to gain an overview of a topic helping you identify key search terms. Be aware though when using Wikipedia that anyone can edit so information may not be reliable.
Why not use a Library subject encyclopedia instead? Written by global experts and leading scholars these provide authoritative reference information. We have recently added the following encyclopedias from Wiley Blackwell to our collection:
- Corsini Encyclopedia of Psychology
- Encyclopedia of Crime and Punishment
- Encyclopedia of Gender and Sexuality Studies
- Encyclopedia of Globalization
- Encyclopedia of Health, Illness, Behaviour and Society
- The International Encyclopedia of Interpersonal Communication

With over 200 entries from leading global scholars providing interdisciplinary and diverse viewpoints.
