Many libraries provide guides about resources in various subject areas (nursing, engineering, history, criminal justice, etc.) that you may find helpful. Specialized encyclopedias, such as Encyclopedia of Human Biology, Encyclopedia of Crime and Justice, and Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Engineering, often provide excellent overviews of a topic, which may give you some background information on your topic. Ask a reference librarian about finding such resources if you need assistance.
