Starting research right... with encyclopedias!

When you need the facts fast...

The past two weeks in library, we have had fun browsing print-based and online encyclopedias.  Encyclopedias are a great resource for credible, quality, reliable information.  

Two reasons to consult a print-based encyclopedia are electricity and batteries are not required and, more importantly, on each page there are new topics capturing our attention that we would never have even thought of exploring.  As an added bonus, students remember better what they see on paper compared to on a screen.

Reasons to consult an online encyclopedia include more than one person can access the same information at the same time from anywhere with internet access and the content is updated daily.
