Benefits to using subject references
Once you have analysed the question, it may be helpful to spend a little time to consult appropriate reference materials.
Encyclopedias can be general (World Book Encyclopedia) or specialised (AccessScience). They generally contain definitions, descriptions, statistics, diagrams, maps, and sometimes detailed essays and comprehensive bibliographies.
They are an excellent place to begin your research.
