Reference Collections

Reference

Reference materials include encyclopaedias, dictionaries, directories, indexes, etc. These items are valuable if you wish to locate specific information or when you are starting to search for material on a chosen topic.

Reference material is shelved within subject areas and cannot be taken out of the Library. A separate dictionary collection is available on Level F.

Bibliographies and indexes held within the reference collections will help in the search for books or journal articles when researching a particular subject. Library staff will help you use those relevant to you, and will also introduce you to the large number of electronic indexes and databases available to you from any networked computer.
