Wiley/Blackwell Reference Online Collection

Good news!  The Wiley/Blackwell Reference Online Collection has recently completed its migration to a new and improved platform and now provides users with instant access to numerous full-text, academic reference titles including Blackwell companions, handbooks, dictionaries and encyclopedias.

Please note, this is no longer a discreet collection.  Users are not able to land on a webpage and view only a list of titles or access only the Reference ebooks, but will now see all Wiley Online Library materials, journals and other select titles we have purchased,  mixed together.  However, ALL 500+ titles, regardless of the collection, can be found in the eBook search.

Congratulations Eileen Wallace!

Lieutenant Governor Jocelyne Roy-Vienneau, Eileen Wallace, Premier Blaine Higgs
