Book Reserves

At the Services Desk on the ground floor of the library, you can find the books your professor has put aside for a 4-hour check-out. You can use these books only in the library and make copies within the copyright limitations.

How to Use Reference Sources

At the beginning stages of your assignment you will probably need some additional background information on your subject. During the middle stages of your project, you might also need to clarify a definition, or explore related topics that didn't come up when you were writing your outline. Reference databases can help you to:

  • Find more background information on your subject(s) quickly and comprehensively.
  • Create a list of related terms which will help you later on your research process with tools like the Mind Map.
  • Clarify new terminology or information that comes up during your work on an assignment.
  • Point you to additional resources.

Credo Reference Database

Credo is a database that contains encyclopedias, handbooks, guides and dictionaries in all disciplines. You can find it in the library's website under "Databases". You can also search using your keywords in this box:
