Re-inventing Reference: This is NOT Your Grandmother's Encyclopedia!
Reference works must be engaging if they're going to useful or profitable. Mash-ups, data visualizations, search technologies, and APIs now enable publishers and end-users to recombine content – engage with – and derive value from, materials that have previously existed in static circumscription.
