About Reference Books
The reference books are located in the book shelves closest to the Information Desk. If you are looking for a specific document or for documents pertaining to particular subject, try searching the index in the back of the book or in the contents pages at the beginning of the book.
Reference books have to stay in the library, but you can make photocopies of the documents you would like to use for research. If you need to create a Works Cited page, don't forget to the photocopy the front and back of the title page, too.
If you need help finding or using a reference book, ask a librarian. We're happy to help!
