Reference Universe -- "searching deeply into the indexes of more than 50,000 electronic and print specialized reference works from over 750 publishers."
This guide provides a list in call number order of some encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference resources for which the UCF Libraries provide online access. This list is NOT comprehensive. Some print versions include additional material not available in the online versions, e.g., photographs, charts, maps, and other topics. Some of the online sources only include very selective portions, e.g. Gale's Biography in Context [Gale Bio] (formerly Biography Resource Center BRC) only provides the biographical sections from the print titles. For some databases it is not possible to provide direct access to the specific title, nor may it be possible to browse the content of a specific title, but the content from the title can be retrieved as the result of a search by topic. For those titles labeled as "UCF ONLINE General Collection" or "(online only)" there may be earlier or later print editions available in the UCF Libraries.
