Why Use Economics Encyclopedias?

Economics encyclopedias can give you the broad overview of a topic. 

Articles are often on very specific topics; encyclopedias and books often take a more general perspective that can enhance your understanding of the specific info in articles.

Some subject encyclopedias are very scholarly. Your professors won't be impressed by WorldBook or Wikipedia; but they might be impressed by a source like the highly respected New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics.
