Reference books are located in the back southwest corner on the main floor.
Reference books include encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, almanacs, statistical sources, multi-volume sets, and other materials. These books are compiled and written by experts. They can be very useful when you are first exploring a topic and need an organized and reliable introduction. Reference books are usually used only in the Library. They can be checked out and taken home only with the special permission of a reference librarian.
