Why use reference sources?

Encyclopedias, dictionaries and handbooks provide useful background overviews of historical and political events, literary authors and works, other cultural topics, etc. For academic work, scholarly reference sources should be used, rather than non-academic websites such as Wikipedia.

Reference books are borrowable and shelved with the main collection.
