GENERAL REFERENCE DESK   

GENERAL REFERENCE DESK chooses a limited number of reference tools for basic and quick research of facts. Our campus library has its own online guides for finding reference material in the paper world. Since the focus of Andy Holt Virtual Library is the Humanities and Fine Arts, we have not included reference tools designed for general information retrieval in Mathematics, Business, the Sciences, Engineering, and Agriculture, though these areas are covered in many general encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs and biography collections. Our general reference tools include some in the languages taught at UT Martin. Among the available omnia reference tools, one would have to count

In addition, the intelligent, systematic and patient use of a search engine bank such as TBob's International Search can yield limitless general reference information. Finally, there is an electronic bridge to human resources in Ask An Expert. This page's reference categories are as follows:
