Finding Reference Books

Reference Universe is different from most Andersen Library databases in that it looks for entries in reference books owned by the library. Reference Universe works when searched using simple methods, such as searching for a few words or a phrase. Unlike other databases, truncation and nesting will not help you. However, click "Show more search options" for a few more advanced searching options.

Sample searches:


global economy

After running a search, click on "View x Index Entries" or "View x Article Title" to get the page numbers of the entry and then, back on the result screen, click on the book title to get the location and call number. Once you get this information you can go to the Main or Reference collection to find the book, or click on the ebook link to view it online.
