Resources: Reference, books & ebooks, databases & media, websites
Our print and online reference tools are great starting points for your research.
Reference works offer concise overviews of a broad range of topics and key concepts, examples of major works and historical perspectives. Bibliographies can point you to additional relevant resources.  Print reference resources offer always-available-in-library works for access to critical information. Online reference works are fully searchable, full text, and can be accessed from home and your mobile devices.

We have both print books to lend and ebooks that can be accessed from home.  You can even borrow a Nook to download one of our ebooks.

We offer thousands of scholarly articles in electronic format through our databases.  They are subject specific as well as multi-disciplinary.  We have image databases, music databases, film databases.  Each discipline has its own tab for relevant resources.

Websites listed here are authoritative and represent a sample of the vast world of Internet resources available.
