The Library maintains both print and electronic reference materials to support curricular development and lesson planning. Print reference sources can be found on the first floor of the Library. For further assistance, a librarian is available at the Reference Desk (x3282) during normal operating hours.
Electronic reference resources consist of databases and web sites which can be accessed from any campus computer. Many are also accessible from off-campus.
