Your first stop in the Library should be the Reference Section. That's the section that has encyclopaedias and dictionaries of all kinds, almanacs, atlases, and reference books you've never even heard of.
 Most reference books are non-circulating, which means you cannot check them out. They are always there in the Reference Section when you need them. So you will have to use these books in the library.
As you move up through the grades, it is important that you learn to use these valuable resources.
For this year ISA Library Activities, we are emphasizing on acquainting our Primary Students with ENCYCLOPAEDIA. The theme for the project is Encyclopaedia: Knowledge and Usage.

An encyclopaedia is a collection of articles on many topics.


Encyclopaedia is one or more books containing information about people, places, events and things, presented accurately and objectively, in an “easy to use” manner, without any prejudice. It may deal with all areas of knowledge (called General Encyclopaedia) or it may confine itself to just one area (called Subject Encyclopaedia). It is a combined effort of a team to write an encyclopaedia .


The word encyclopaedia comes from the Greek words enkyklios paideia, meaning general or well-rounded education. In ancient times, scholars found that the information they needed was scattered in manuscripts in various parts of the world. Scholars made their own reference works either by copying from the works of the other authors or from other sources. These ancient reference works were the ancestors of the encyclopaedia. But these were neither organized nor accurate in information. Many scholars call the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle “the father of encyclopaedists”. In 300's B.C. he made one of the first attempts to bring all existing knowledge together in a series of books.


Encyclopaedia bridges the gap between what there is “to know” and the reader who “wants to know”. Content and presentation depend on the readers who are going to consult the encyclopaedia. Most encyclopaedias use one of two basic methods of subject arrangement - alphabetical arrangement and the topical arrangement. Indexing is one of the main features of Encyclopaedia which provides access to detailed information and draws together subjects that have significant relationships. For an encylopaedia constant revision is necessary to make it up to date.

Please visit your Library, explore the world of encyclopaedia and enjoy fun-filled activities.
