Until March 1, 2008, the Dalhousie Libraries are hosting a trial of Blackwell Reference Online, the new online reference collection from Wiley-Blackwell Publishing. Nearly 300 reference volumes are currently available in BRO, making it the largest academic reference collection of its kind available online.
Subject coverage includes Business & Economics, History, Language & Linguistics, Literature & Cultural Studies, Philosophy & Religion, Sociology & Psychology, and Classics. The interface incorporates sophisticated functionalities such as: search options and innovative classification – by subject, person, period, key topic and place; ‘quick search’ on every page allows searching of individual titles or the whole database; numerous illustrations enhance and illuminate the content.
Access during the trial period is available on campus only.
