Some reasons to consider starting your research with overview sources (ex: review articles, handbooks, companions):
 

  • You'll gain context and background that will inform your deeper research
     

  • By becoming familiar with relevant names, geographic locations, dates, and events, you'll have an easier time identifying books and articles that will be useful for your research.
     

  • Rather than wading through lots of search results, you can use overview sources to find a few key scholarly articles & books within your discipline.
