Reference Books

The Reference section is located on the first floor of the library. Reference works are a good place to begin your research, focus a topic, and pick up on significant people, events, themes, aspects, and terminology. Typically these are not the sources you will cite but are ideal in gathering background information, breaking a large topic down, and identifying keywords to use in database searches.
