Reference works are used to look up specific facts and data, rather than reading straight through. They include handbooks, dictionaries, standards, and encyclopedias.
Print reference books (design handbooks, standards, dictionaries, and encyclopedias) are located in the 2nd floor Reference Room of Campbell Library. Science reference books are in Q, medical reference books in R and engineering reference books in T.
Many reference books are now available online and can be located by title using Library Search, or through databases with reference works.
