Sage eReference

We interrupt your summer to bring this important message about a new resource...

Sage eReference!

Sage eReference is a database that is similar to the Gale Virtual Reference Library. They are both a collection of electronic reference books that can be accessed from home or on campus.

Unlike the Gale Virtual Reference Library, the Sage eReference titles haven't been loaded into Ignacio yet, so doing a key word or title search will not yield results.

Upon entering the database, which is accessible through the A - Z Database List, you are taken to the advanced search screen:



The advanced search screen allows you to limit within which books you search, to search multiple/specific fields (e.g. headline, text, sidebars, etc.), with multiple terms and operators, and then sort your results.

If you don't like that, you can try the basic search by clicking on the "home" tab:



The basic search has only one box, similar to a Google search, and has titles that you can browse.



What do you think the best thing about an electronic resource like this is? I think it'll be great for those 2 a.m. last minute touches--the library's closed but the book's still online! And another good thing is this information is reliable, unlike Wikipedia.
