Reference books have many purposes. They can give definitions, provide background on a topic, provide statistics, give a starting place for further research. A good reference article can provide you with the basic knowledge in a field which will enable you to understand more complex books and articles.
We have a good E-Reference collection which can be searched in a number of ways. You can use Summon to search them all at once. Or you can search the various collections individually.
Use this box to search Summon for all our our E-Reference resources at once. You can then filter your results by date, discipline (e.g. Business or Economics - or both!) subject etc.
