Background exploration of a topic is crucial to good research.  Reference encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks are the tools to use if you need an overview of a subject, definitions of terms, biographical information on a key figure in the field, or  recommended lists of readings.

Look at some of the background sources recommended, whether they are individual print or electronic titles or collections in a database.
