Subject Encyclopedias

Subject encyclopedias are a good starting point for researching a topic, especially an unfamiliar topic. The library provides access to hundreds of online encyclopedias, arranged here by subjects.

So why use these instead of Wikipedia? I suggest you use these in addition to Wikipedia, because unlike Wikipedia, the encyclopedias provided here are written by experts in a particular field, Wikipedia entries could be written by anyone; see the Wikipedia general disclaimer.
