How Do I Check Out Books?

Specialized Encyclopedias

This is just a small sample of the wonderful books that we have in the Reference sections at both campus libraries. Encyclopedias in this section are a great place to start. They will give you background information in a straightforward way. Ask a librarian for help locating your topic, as books are scattered according to topic -- history, science, literature, etc.
