Specialized Reference articles are not "general encyclopedia" articles such as those found in World Book. These articles come from encyclopedias, almanacs, dictionaries and other short entry sources that provide the researcher with very strong background information on very specific topics. These short articles are often written by specialists in the field, and give an introduction to the key players and events associated with the topic.
REMEMBER: E-Encyclopedias have E-TOOLS ; USE THEM!
