Using reference books to begin your research is a great way to find out facts, definitions, and other details that will familiarize you with – and help you better understand – a new field of interest. Reference books, including dictionaries, encyclopedia, atlases, handbooks, and manuals, pack a lot of information into titles that are easy-to-use.
At GRCC, you will find reference books in print on the Library’s first floor, or online through a variety of entry points. GRCC Library OneSearch will point you to articles in many reference eBooks. Most Subject Guides will list print and eBook reference books specific to that Subject Guide department or topic – often in a Reference Book box. Plus, we provide a Reference Subject Guide that can help you get started.
Whether you are starting your research and need an overview, or, if you are writing an assignment and realize you need to cite an authoritative, quality definition or explanation, try Oxford Reference. Logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
