This is the Oxford Reference Online home page.
Prepared by leading scholars and
dictionary-makers, each entry comes from a
reference book that has undergone rigorous
checking and quality-control.
Oxford Reference Online is a collection of over
185 reference books and dictionaries.
You can see the titles of all the books by
clicking on Subjects Books on the red bar at
the top of the page.

…leisure interests…
…and professional needs.

heart
If there are too many results (in this case there
are 691)…
Use the Quick Search on any page to search the
content of all 185 books at once.
This gets rid of all entries not relevant to the
Performing Arts.
…use the Refine by Subject column to narrow the
search down. In this case, we are looking for the
word heart in theatrical works.

Notice that the top results now all have
illustrations.
Back on the main result list for heart, you can
also reorder the 691 results. In this case, we
are looking for a diagram of a heart.
Notice that you can cut and paste the citation
for each entry…
Use the tabs at the top of the results to reorder.
…as well as printing or emailing each page.
