General reference resources

“So much has already been written about everything that you can't find out anything about it,” said James Thurber. This page is an attempt to prove Thurber wrong.

“General reference” is a “fuzzy” term, suggesting resources that are too diverse to be confined to a specific subject. If you do not find here a category you are looking for, try these other pages:

Geography Government History
Internet Libraries News
Universities and colleges Weather Writing and literature

Another place that might be helpful in locating resources not listed below is the list of Internet subject guides.

Comprehensive “reference desks”



Selected reference subjects
