Reference Department Resources

The Reference Collection offers a rich variety of resources from general and specialized subject encyclopedias, to extensive legal and literary materials. The collection is continually evolving toward more technological access, adding databases, digital sources, and internet sites.

To locate print resources at LIU, use the Library's online catalog, LIUCat. Materials located in Reference are listed as "Post Main Reference" and do not circulate.

To search a database for journal articles and other sources, you can find a list of databases arranged by subject or alphabetically. There is also a vendor list where the databases are grouped together by company name, such as InfoTrac, WebSPIRS, and Proquest.

Subject Access to Collections will help you choose which databases to use for a topic, along with related reference sources, selected periodicals, and the Library of Congress classification numbers for the subject. It's our version of one-stop shopping.

Internet Resources (Virtual Reference Collection) offers links to useful websites arranged by subject.
