Reference Sources

Reference sources are useful to learn more about a topic.  Reference sources include: encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, directories, bibliographic sources, handbooks, manuals, and statistical abstracts. Criminal justice encyclopedias and dictionaries describe the specialized language and history of the field in greater detail than general encyclopedias.  The majority of print reference materials are located on the fourth floor of the library in the reference shelves and cannot be checked out.
