Reference Division

The Reference Department is located on the second floor of Watson Library. We assist patrons in finding information, learning to use library resources and using electronic resources.


User guides are available to assist students and faculty in their research. Some serve as introductory lists to the library resources of specific subject fields (e.g., Poetry, U.S. History, Education). They provide lists of resources and databases in the library. While not comprehensive, they offer a good starting point for research. You'll find them online in the directory, and in LibGuides.
