New Media Finder Pages Make Locating Online References Easier

For students, faculty, and staff who are looking for online reference sources at Ball State University Libraries, there are now two new search pages, which make it easier to access online versions of many popular reference works, such as Credo Reference, Gale Virtual Reference Library, and Oxford Reference Online, as well as some important discipline-specific sources, such as Grove Music Online and Literature Resource Center.

The “Search Online Reference Sources” option provides quick and easy location of online reference titles. The other option, “Browse for Reference Sources (Print & Online)” makes browsing easier when one wishes to locate reference materials by general discipline, e.g., architecture, history, and astronomy, or by geographic area or type of resources, e.g., language dictionaries, encyclopedias, style manuals.

We offer several hundred online sources that cover a wide range of subject areas, such as

· A Dictionary of Twentieth-Century Art, and Collins French Dictionary Plus
· Encyclopedia of Business and Finance
· Encyclopedia of Food and Culture
· Gale’s Great American Court Cases
· Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary
· The Oxford English Dictionary
