Reference works, if I happen to review any, are reviewed here. This would include manuals and handbooks, unless they fall within some specific review category such as Computers or Electronics.
One candidate for inclusion here is the Metal Cutting Tool Handbook, which I own but have not read much of. Subject bibliographies would also appear here.
