Subject-specific dictionaries are useful for those working on cross-displinary projects and students new to a discipline.

Specialized encyclopedias provide a wealth of information, such as basic, background information on a topic, bibliographies of articles, books, and other materials on a topic, and images, sounds, and graphics to add interest to your presentations and posters.To find more specialized encyclopedias, you can perform a keyword search in theLSU Library Catalog for "encyclopedia" and "your topic" (for example, type in "encyclopedia ocean" or "encyclopedia plant").

Handbooks provide standard information, including tables of data, citations to literature, and brief synopses of topics.
