Wikipedia down? Use the Library’s online encyclopedias

You may have heard the news that Wikipedia will be going down for 24 hours starting 12 a.m. ET on Wednesday, January 18.  During the blackout, take the opportunity to try out the Library’s reference databases, such as Oxford Reference Online and Credo Reference.  These databases provide searchable access to online encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri, and other reference works from respected academic publishers.  In addition, the Library subscribes to many important encyclopedias online, from the Encyclopaedia Britannica to the International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences

To learn more about what is available through the University of Chicago Library, view our Library Guide to Reference Sources.  Or, look for reference sources by subject area
