Why Use Encyclopedias, Nutshells, Dictionaries, Etc.?

These tools have many uses, but the following are the most common:

  • Summarize a subject that is new to you
  • Find or define words that are new to you including synonyms
  • Selecting the most important primary sources, such as cases, statutes & regulations, relevant to your topic
  • Introduce the subtopics of your subject
  • Show you other topics that are implied or related to your subject
  • Provide the background you need to read more complex material such as law review articles, books, cases, and treatises.
