Last Updated: Apr 25, 2019 Views: Views: 18

A reference book generally is a collection of facts, i.e. it is a reference to data.  Examples of reference books:

  • Encyclopedias
  • Dictionaries
  • Who's Who

They're not the kind of book you sit down and read for pleasure or for more than a brief entry.  Reference books can be found in the online collection of the Library as well as the physical collection, for example, the  Credo Reference Collection  Credo Reference Collection contains all online reference books.
