Reference Universe

Thanks to student funding, the UW-L campus community now has access to Reference Universe.

Reference Universe is a single, centralized access point to Murphy Library’s collection of online and print reference works (subject encyclopedias, handbooks, compendia), allowing you to deeply search within the collection through tables of contents and actual back-of-the-book indexes.

Link directly into the work if available online. Covers and about  works total.

Note that Reference Universe provides links to the full text of approximately 5,400 titles held by Murphy Library. It also provides information about approximately 45,000 additional reference additional sources that may be found or requested outside of Murphy Library holdings.
