Reference books are usually encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, manuals and other books that you would refer to when wanting to know a definition of a word or concept, a general overview of a topic, specific information about a certain period of time or event in history, etc. They are most likely books you would not be reading cover to cover! We have a number of reference books that can be accessed and read online at all BCC campuses and remotely, and we have print reference books at all three campus libraries as well. The print reference books cannot be checked out but you can photocopy or scan pages, or use the reference books in the library.
