Xrefer and Paratext Team Up for Delivery

Jun 24, 2005

Xrefer, a provider of online reference services to libraries worldwide, and Paratext, an independent publisher of online reference databases and library services, have announced that the Xreferplus Ready-Reference service is now integrated with Paratext's bibliographic database, Reference Universe.

Reference Universe integrates article titles and indexes to over 6,500 encyclopedias and other references. In addition, each Reference Universe query is automatically matched against the library's local print and electronic reference holdings, designed to facilitate research for patrons and librarians who, up until now, had to separately research their local printed collections and their full-text electronic reference databases.
