History: Print Reference

Finding Reference Books

One of the best ways to find Reference Books is to browse the Reference Shelves.  Call numbers  C, D, E and F  cover the field of history.  Of course if you are researching the history of a subject like Economics or Science, you will also need to check the call numbers associated with those fields.

You can use the Connelly Library catalog to filter out only Reference materials.
Do a keyword search and use the drop down menu to sort by Reference Resources.
