Online and Print Reference Works

Dictionaries and encyclopedias are considered reference works; we refer to them to get quick facts or an overview of a topic. Most of the links on this page go to reference works the Library happens to own in an electronic format. There are also reference works in print format that you can browse by visiting the reference section of the Library (room 123).

General Encyclopedias

Discipline-specific Dictionaries
