What is a Reference Book?

Never used a reference book before?

Reference books are authoritative, often unbiased, information sources such as dictionaries, atlases, encyclopedias, etc.

The print reference collection is located on the first floor of Rice Library.

Why Reference Sources?

Reference sources can provide you with valuable information such as:
  • Background information
  • Important figures
  • Dates, places, and people
  • Definitions and key terms
  • Lists of additional sources (articles, books, etc.)
They are an excellent way to begin your research by allowing you to become familiar with the topic in preparation to choose the best articles, books, and additional resources.
