Use reference books as background sources to get quick facts or information, or an overview of a subject. Some examples of reference sources are: dictionaries, encyclopedias, bibliographies, almanacs, directories, atlases, and handbooks.

- AccessScienceFeatures searchable articles from McGraw-Hill's Encyclopedia of Science & Technology (10th ed.). Provides fast and accurate access to authoritative articles in all major areas of science and technology.
- Encyclopedia of Mathematical PhysicsThe Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics provides a complete resource for researchers, students and lecturers with an interest in mathematical physics.
- Encyclopedia of Measurement and StatisticsPresents state-of-the-art information and ready-to-use facts from the fields of measurement and statistics in an unintimidating style. The ideas and tools contained in these pages are approachable and can be invaluable for understanding our very technical world and the increasing flow of information.
- Encyclopedia of Physical Science and TechnologyA comprehensive, multidisciplinary encyclopedia with authoritative entries on a range of subjects including geology, chemistry, molecular biology, mathematics, engineering, environmental science and more.
- Handbook on the History of Mathematics EducationThis handbook provides a comprehensive and systematic aid for researchers around the world in finding the information they need about historical developments in mathematics education, not only in their own countries, but globally as well.
- Mathematical ConstantsFamous mathematical constants include the ratio of circular circumference to diameter, pi=3.14 …, and the natural logarithmic base, e=2.178 … Students and professionals usually can name at most a few others, but there are many more buried in the literature and awaiting discovery. How do such constants arise, and why are they important?
