Background Information -- Including Dictionaries and Encyclopedias

IMPORTANT! -- Books labeled "Ref" are shelved on "Reference" sections of shelving on the upstairs floors where the books' call numbers are located (and on Level 4 of Lewis Annex).  For example, books labeled "Ref. E" and "Ref. HV" are shelved on Level 2 because that's where the other items with those call numbers are shelved.  The Reference shelving sections are located at the beginning of the call number sequence on each floor.  While these books have been relocated to the stacks, they remain "library use only."  See the Location Guide for details.
