Library Reference and Circulating Books

Reference Books

Reference books cannot be checked out of the library. The content you will probably need is less than 12 pages in length.  On the main floor of the Library Commons are two high speed scanners. You can scan the needed pages for FREE and save the scanned pages to a flash drive or send the scanned pages to your email or to your Google docs account.  You have between $10 and $20 of a FREE printing credit that can be used at any one of the 46 Commons computer workstations.

Reference Titles that may be of benefit:

The Architecture Section call number has a NA prefix.  There are two separate book sections in the library, reference and circulating.  The circulating books are the majority of the books on the shelf. They are followed by the reference collection which is closest to the back door of the computer classroom.  Reference books have a spine label REF.
