A reference work is a collection of information compiled together (usually by some linked theme) so that it can easily be referenced. They are generally intended to be used to look up information rather than read cover to cover. Types of reference books include dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, etc.

Star Trek reference works tend to either approaching their subject as if it were fact within Star Trek fictional world, or from the real-world perspective looking at the production of the Star Trek franchise.
