Oxford Reference

Oxford Reference is an online reference collection subscribed by the Library. It provides access to 100 key Oxford Dictionaries, Companions, and Encyclopedias in various areas including language, science, medicine, humanities, social sciences, business, and management. It would be helpful if you need to check or quote definitions in your research paper or assignment.

It provides tips on how you can cite the information in different citation styles, and allows exporting the references to EndNote or other reference management tools.
