A New Universe to Explore

The Library has recently added a new reference service called ReferenceUniverse. This new tool allows you to search back-of-the-book indexes of 10,000 reference works going back to 1985. About 85 percent of the titles are printed reference works, not available for federated (collective) searching any other way. Many of the titles are located in the Axe Library collection.

ReferenceUniverse bases it's selection of titles from sources such as the American Reference Book Annual (ARBA) and Choice Magazine. The titles span all disciplines and an extensive list is available (PDF, ~150 pp), showing titles, publishers, and amount of content available from online sources.
