Academic Enrichment Programs (AEP): Summer Research Program - Science & Engineering: Encyclopedias & Handbooks

Research guide for science and engineering students in the Academic Enrichment Programs (AEP)


The articles in these encyclopedias, written by experts in the their respective disciplines, provide good overviews of science and engineering topics, with bibliographies to key research articles. These are a source for background information rather than the most recent research. For that, you would consult the databases to find articles.

Here are some of our science and engineering encyclopedias, with more listed on the subject guides. Mouse over the titles for more information.
