Reference Collection

The Reference Room contains:

  • Subject-specific dictionaries and encyclopedias, Bibles and bible commentaries, and many other Reference books which cannot be checked out of the library
  • Periodicals and scholarly journals in print and microfilm/microfiche format. Many more periodicals are available in electronic format in the library's subscription databases
  • Computers with Internet access and Microsoft Office

The study tables, individual study carrels, and soft seating make the Reference Room a great place for serious study. The librarians at the nearby Questions Desk are readily available to answer all your research needs.

The Reference Room is designated as a Quiet Study Zone.
