Background Information

Use these specialized encyclopedias similarly to the way you might use Wikipedia. They're a good a place to get a basic overview of an area and to find definitions for unfamiliar jargon. Most of them will also have a bibliography that can point you to more good sources, many of which are likely to be scholarly.
