Oxford Reference Online

A digital collection of reference sources in various subject areas. While it can be useful to see varied/multi-disciplinary angles on a particular topic, you search by, you can also limit to specific subject areas. Additionally, you can limit the results to more fulsome "subject reference" works (rather than subject-specific dictionaries containing brief definitions only).
