Specialized Encyclopedias and Dictionaries

Specialized encyclopedias and dictionaries are located in the Reference collection. These encyclopedias and dictionaries cover a specific subject area. A general encyclopedia such as World Book covers all subject areas but not as indepth as a specialized source. A general dictionary such as Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary  also aims to provide information on just basic words. Some examples of specialized encyclopedias and dictionaries are listed below.
