E-Reference Books


E-Reference books are electronic editions of print reference books and in many cases, the library also owns the print copy. The electronic editions allow access during hours that the library is closed. They are reliable reference resources and should not be confused with the Internet. The Internet is merely the method of delivery for standard reference resources that the library has purchased.
