Reference Services

  • The reference collection consists of over 4,000 volumes covering a variety of subject areas from arts to zoology and everything in between. It includes dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, indexes, concordances, handbooks, and much more.
  • Reference materials must be used in the library and cannot be checked out. This is to insure that a basic core collection of information is available to everyone at all times. You are free to take reference books out of the reference area, and you are also welcome to photocopy any pages you need. for some titles we may have a duplicate copy or a previous edition that can be checked out.
  • The reference collection is shelved according to the Dewey Decimal System on the main floor near the Reference Desk.
