- You can access the Referencer online anywhere, including on your mobile devices, and we will constantly update the Referencer as new materials emerge.
- We think of the Referencer as a collaborative project – while we can’t give everyone edit rights for obvious reasons, we invite your comments, suggestions, requests, heck, even your demands – what would you like to see changed, added, or improved on the Referencer? Tell us, and if we can, we’ll do it!
