Try a multidiciplinary search from the library home page main search box, and then use the left-hand filter menu on the results screen to narrow to FORMAT: "Reference Entries."  This tactic also works for surveying scholarly articles from different disciplinary perspectives.  Overwhelmed by results?  Try limiting to publication date in the last 3-5 years, sorted by relevance.
