Glossaries: You might want to rethink that point in respect to glossaries. There is surely no way that we could have hard copy access to the literally thousands of glossaries that can be found and used on-line. I suggest that glossaries certainly fall into your category of an "enhanced" resource.
Dictionaries: A less important point, but I use on-line dictionaries when a word crops up in a language that I don't normally work with. Through on-line dictionaries, I have access to dictionaries in dozens of languages, which I use too rarely to justify the investment of buying them, avoiding the need for a time-consuming trip to the library just to look up a single word.
