Resources You may find in the Library

There are different resources for different information needs.

  • Reference Books include encyclopedias, handbooks, and dictionaries. These types of books may be useful as you explore background knowledge, understanding disciplinary terminology, and fact-checking.  Reference books can be in print and/or electronic format.
  • Books are found in the online library catalog and most circulate with three-week borrowing periods.  in addition to traditional books the library has a large collection of ebooks.
  • Article Databases are used for finding journal articles. Some of the databases contain general articles on many subjects, while some are more subject specific.
  • Statistics are useful to support an argument or making predictions.
