Reference Resources

Reference resources are sources of information that people can use to look up factual information about a topic. In the library, reference books cannot be checked out, which means they are always available for people to use. Luckily, there is a vast amount of reference information available online through the library's online resources and through the free Internet.

On this page, you can find a description of each of the main kinds of reference sources and link to a list of great online reference resources of each kind.
