Electronic Reference Books

E-reference searches often go directly to the entry and may not give the original page numbers from the print edition, but are faster to search.

  • Credo Literati -More than 572 reference books, on almost any topic imaginable.
  • Gale Virtual Reference Library - Smaller collection of reference books published by Gale. Very strong in history, literature, and social science. No overlap with Credo.
  • Oxford English Dictionary - "The definitive record of the English language"; contains definitions, etymology, and illustrative quotations showing words as they were used at various times
