Wikipedia or ????

You may be tempted to use Wikipedia to get quick information or an overview on a topic, but there are hazards in using an openly editable document for research.  IF you choose to use Wikipedia, ALWAYS check the sources then use those sources instead --- it is always better to have the original source of the information.

A better way to locate brief overviews is to use one of the published encyclopedias that the Morgan Library subscribes to and are available here:  

           Oxford Reference 

These resources also provide bibliographies or lists of other resources to help you locate more information.  Encyclopedias are a great place to start your research.
