Reference Resources at the IU Southeast Library

Online Reference Collections

Print Reference Collection

Behind the Service Desk is a small collection of materials including encyclopedias, dictionaries, collections of facts and statistics, directories, books of quotations, and much more. This is a good place to find a quick fact or a general overview of a subject. Because these resources should be available at all times, these books may not be checked out. The materials are arranged in Library of Congress call number order on the reference shelves, as is the regular book collection.
