Reference Books

In order to search for information effectively, it is a good strategy to use reference books to learn basic facts and terminology about a topic.  Here are books in the Reference Collection of the library and online reference books that will provide a good beginning.

Reference Books are located in the area near the Reference Desk.  Reference Books cannot leave the Library, but can be scanned using the two high-speed book scanners located near the Circulation Desk.

Look for Reference Books by using the Library Catalog or browse the shelves.  While Sociology covers a wide range of topics, the main Library call number area begins in HM.
