*New* Information Sci-Tech Encyclopedias

Why would I use an information science & technology encyclopedia? Let's recall for a minute, why we liked encyclopedias so much back in middle school.  They cover all the big topics, provide all the core concepts, are written in accessible language and, with each entry at just a few pages in length, they are quick to read. Later in high school when you learned about bibliographies, you may have recognized that encyclopedias can be handy in directing you to the central books and articles on a topic through the list of references at the end of each entry. But, you might ask, how does this work for info sci & tech topics? My advice - Try it. You'll like it! Links follow:
