Room of References

The Room of References on the Third Floor of our Main Library provides reference materials and general tools of many, many kinds. There is also a Reference Desk available for inquiries and consultations. If one should feel the need for a rapid and accurate search of materials in our Library, please do visit our Room of References. With a simple reference interview, our librarians are able to provide help to quickly locate a material to our patrons.
