Reference departments in most libraries collect sources containing factual information, usually in a format that does not require reading the entire text of the source. These sources allow users to find background information such as names, dates, events, places, statistics, and definitions of words. This information can help you place your ancestors in context and provide you with clues for further research. For example, if you wish to find a brief history of the Texas community where your ancestors settled in the 1920s, consult The New Handbook of Texas. If you aren't certain about the location of a town, try an atlas or a gazetteer. For the definition of a legal term in a court or land record, check Black's Law Dictionary.

Although Reference books may not be checked out, you can use our scanner to make digital copies. You can also make photocopies using your Buffalo Gold card or a copy card. Copy cards may be purchased at the Research & Access Desk on the first floor of the Library. Photocopy machines are located near the Research & Access Desk. Ask at the Research & Access Desk for assistance with photocopying.
