Encyclopedias are large works which contain comprehensive information about many fields. Encyclopedias are of many volumes to accommodate all the subjects. Numerous articles on different subjects are listed in the alphabetical order for ease of access. A dictionary contains only concise information about on a term, but an encyclopedia provide detailed information and presents it with the help of illustrations and maps. Tremendous effort and research is required to write an encyclopedia which is usually written by experts. As in the case of dictionaries, encyclopedias may also be more specific like those written about a nation or geographical region, those written about a culture or those written about specific subjects like medicine, politics, law etc.
