Welcome to the General Reference subject guide. The purpose of this guide is to highlight the most useful general reference sources available in Loyola’s collection. Reference sources are valuable for finding topic overviews and background information, and offer credible, accurate alternatives to Wikipedia. Specialized reference sources can be found in relevant subject guides.
