Print Reference Sources

Here's a partial list of print reference sources that the Carmichael Library owns.  To locate these books, look on the main floor stacks that are labeled "Reference."  Or, you can search online.  When searching in the online catalogue, you'll be able to identify reference sources by the Ref. that prefaces each call number.

 If you have any problems finding sources, stop by the Research Help Desk on the main floor of the library.
