Providing direct access to Gale Virtual Reference Library
Why provide access to this source?
When a student begins to brainstorm an idea for a research topic, it is a good idea to a solid working knowledge about a topic. Consulting a subject specific encyclopedia will provide an introduction to a topic. The main use of an encyclopedia is to provide a broad overview of a chosen subject or topic. An encyclopedia can introduce language specific to the research process. This can provide a student with the appropriate language and terminology to help them identify keywords and design a research question.
