Reference sources include dictionaries, encyclopedias, thesauri, directories, and other materials providing general information about a variety of subjects. When you need the "backstory" on a subject, reference sources are the main source for who, what, when, where and why questions. Search the library catalog for reference materials or ask a librarian to direct you to these sources in the Reference Collection.
|The Reference Collection houses an assortment of dictionaries, encyclopedias, directories, guides, and handbooks. The collection is located on the 1st floor of the Madigan Library.|
