On March 20 Bartleby.com, a premiere source for free online literature, verse, and reference books, relaunched their Website and added five major reference works. Users can now access complete electronic versions of the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition; The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition; Roget's II: The New Thesaurus, Third Edition; Simpson's Contemporary Quotations; and The American Heritage Book of English Usage. Each of these works may be browsed by the table of contents or index or searched by keyword. Unlike most of Bartleby's offerings, which are classic texts now out of copyright, these additions are all recent editions, the oldest dating to 1988. The new Bartleby homepage is attractive and easily navigated, offering pull-down menu access to its content in four categories: Reference, Verse, Nonfiction, and Literature. Users can also conduct keyword searches across all or selected areas of the site from the main page.
