Can you only copy a "reference" as a URL and not a "selection"?

I'm creating a note in a notebook and was having trouble creating a link in the note to the ISBE (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia).  The ISBE evidently is a book that evidently does not have "references".  When I select some text the right-click menu brings up the "Selection" and "Headword" in the left pain, but no "reference".  When I select text in the Catechism of the Catholic Church the right-click menu left pane shows the "Selection" option and the "<> Reference" option.  If I click on the "Reference" option then I can choose to the Reference as a URL. I can then create a link in my note to this reference.  Is it the case then that unless a book has "references" the link can not be copied as a URL?

You can use "Copy Location As: URL" from the resource's panel menu to get a link to that location in that resource. This works whether the resource has references or not.

Note that references are more "generic": copying a reference link to (e.g.,) "John 3:16" will open it in your preferred Bible, even if you change that in the future. "Copy Location As: URL" on the panel menu is hard-coded to the specific resource you copied the location from.

No. It's only that FL choose to give some functionality into the context menu (right-click-menu) for References and not for others, such as Selection or Headword. 

You can create a link as a URL nearly everywhere in Logos by using the panel menu (the three vertical dots at the top right corner of the tab, sometimes called kebab menu):
