Sample Reference Books

Reference books are great for obtaining background information on your topic as well as helping you to come up with ideas if you don't have a topic in mind. Reference books also tend to have bibliographies, which can be a great starting point for research.

There are many different types of reference books located in the Thomas Cooper Library's Reference Department. Below are just some examples. Ask at the reference desk if you need assistance in locating a reference book.
