Reference Work
A REFERENCE WORK is a book or periodical (or its electronic equivalent ) to which one can refer for information . The information is intended to be found quickly when needed. Reference works are usually referred to for particular pieces of information, rather than read beginning to end.

Many reference works are compiled by a team of contributors whose work is coordinated by one or more editors rather than by an individual author. Indices are commonly provided in many types of reference work. Updated editions are usually published as needed, in some cases annually (e.g. Whitaker\'s Almanack , Who\'s Who ). Reference works include dictionaries , thesauruses , encyclopedias , almanacs , bibliographies , and catalogs (e.g. catalogs of libraries, museums or the works of individual artists)
