Reference Department

The Reference Department is the place to start your research. The Reference Collection includes materials such as indexes and abstracts, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, atlases, statistical sources and bibliographies.

Computers in this area provide access to the online catalog, the Internet, and databases on a wide variety of topics.

For help with the electronic sources, research questions, or the library in general, please visit our friendly librarians at the Reference Desk. You can also schedule an appointment with a reference librarian for more extensive research assistance.
