Reference Universe is different from most Andersen Library databases in that it looks for entries in reference books, such as encyclopedias, owned by the Library. Reference Universe works when searched using simple methods, such as searching for a few words or a phrase.
After running a search, click on "X Index Entries" or "X Article Titles" to get the volume and page numbers of the entry and then either click on "Locate this Book" to get the location and call number for a print book in the Andersen Library or the ebook button next to the entry for an online book.
