Paratext added links to the reference works from the Sharpe Online Reference collection to Reference Universe, a resource that contains nearly 50,000 scholarly subject encyclopedias and other reference titles. Sharpe Online Reference (SOLR) includes the titles that make up the U.S. and Global History and Culture collections and combines award-wining subject coverage with online research.
Diana McDermott, Vice-President and Director of Marketing and Sales for SOLR, says "We are delighted that the thousands of authoritative, accessible articles available on Sharpe Online Reference will now be easily discoverable on Reference Universe. We are confident that through this partnership students will find exactly the information they need and librarians will be pleased with increased usage of their resources."
Reference Universe is a cross-searchable database that supports both article and index-level discovery of a collection of English-language scholarly reference works. The service focuses on electronic and print subject encyclopedias, as well as scholarly compendia.
