Reference Books

The Reference Collection is located on the 1st floor of the library.  It contains many encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, and other specialized sources for various subject areas. 

The materials in the Reference Collection do not check out of the library, but you may make photocopies, if needed.

An encyclopedia is a good place to start if you need an overview of a topic.
