Product Description
Reference Universe, published by Paratext, is an index to over 5,100 reference books from over 260 publishers, with approximately 150 titles added per month. The focus is on subject encyclopedias, although bibliographies, dictionaries, and other types of reference material are included. The subject matter is very broad, ranging from Africa to zoology. Publishers include major names such as ABC-Clio, John Wiley and Sons, Oxford University Press, etc. The product indexes both the article titles and the reference book indexes. The titles go back in time to 1908. At the time of this review 588 of the titles were published in 2003 or 2004. The database can be searched or browsed, though browsing yields only a record for the title, and not a list of contents. This is a tool of interest to both academic and public librarians, as it opens the reference collection up to greater use.
