Located on the first floor of the Research Collections of the Wells Library, the Reference Department
houses the main reference collection of the library, including encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases,
indexes, and bibliographies. The Reference Desk is staffed by librarians, professional and support staff
who provide assistance with the Libraries' catalog, with hundreds of licensed networked resources
and with any research or informational query or problem.
