Reference Shelf

Sometimes a reference book like a dictionary, handbook, or encyclopedia can be just what you need to verify a fact or get a concise introduction to a topic. The Library has hundreds of reference books, both print and online. Below is a selection. If you need help finding additional titles, your librarian would be glad to help!

Field Guides: The Bioscience and Natural Resources Library has dozens of field guides to help you identify everything from lichen to lizards, locally, nationally, and internationally. To find a field guide that meets your needs, you can search OskiCat. You can also use the Guide to Field Guides database - once you've found a guide of interest, follow the links to see if we have the guide in the Library.
