The Reference section of the library contains information-dense resources, such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri, atlases, and reference handbooks. The reference shelves are separate from the other shelves. Ask the staff to point the shelves out to you if you have trouble locating them. Click the link to find our library locations & hours.

You can also search the library catalog or through our discovery system, Encore, for resources that are often in the reference section. Try searching for "encyclopedia" or "dictionary" to find resources.

Take special care to note that they actually are in the reference section. In Encore's search results, you will see the location below the title of the book (for example, Northline Reference or Katy Reference). In the library catalog, you will need to click on the item and look under the Location field. If you see "Circulating" or "Reserve" then you will know these items are not in the reference section.
