Reference Resources

Reference resources are publications to which one can quickly refer for factual information such as overviews, critiques, definitions, and/or timelines.  Reference resources are usually referred to for particular pieces of information rather than read from beginning to end.  Often an article or section of a reference resource is all that is required to meet one's information need.

Reference resources maybe found in both the library print reference collection and the online library databases.  

Please note:  the library databases are available only to Nerinx Hall students, faculty, and staff.  The articles are password protected.  Passwords can be found at, google sheet available to those with gmail accounts.
