Beyond Wikipedia: Online Encyclopedias
The library's collection of searchable online encyclopedias is accessible from anywhere (including off campus). Most are specialized sources covering specific subject areas in more depth than general encyclopedias such as Wikipedia or Britannica (though we have that, too). Our collection includes the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, the DSM-IV, Grove Music Online, and the Oxford English Dictionary, so check it out!
