There are both print and online versions for all of these. Each campus library has a Reference collection - a complete section of dictionaries, encyclopedias and atlases. Ask a Librarian for more help in finding these type books.

The research guide, General Reference, Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, Atlases , will lead you to more information on:

  • Encyclopedias - general and subject-specific; good starting point for research
  • Dictionaries - general and subject-specific and languages
  • Atlases - general, historical, geological, etc. maps
  • General Reference - free web sites with many types of reference sources
