New electronic resource: Reference Universe

Baron-Forness library users now have access to a unique research tool called Reference Universe. This tool allows library users to dig deeply into the library's collection of print and electronic reference resources. Here's a description of Reference Universe from the publisher's website:

Unlike a library catalog, which provides only data about reference works, Reference Universe searches deeply into the complete indexes of more than 16,000 electronic and print reference works. Use Reference Universe to find just the right article(s) to get a grounding in your research topic, build a bibliography and establish a solid research foundation.

Try it out! And be sure to let us know what you think (use the "comments" feature below). The resource is not yet available from off campus, but should be in the very near future.
