Where do I find reference resources?

Reference resources are usually things like dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks or other resources with great background information.  

We have two main online reference resources: Credo Reference and Gale Virtual Reference Library.  Credo Reference is a database which provides full-text online versions of hundreds of high quality reference books in a wide variety of subjects.  Gale Virtual Reference Library is a smaller collection of reference books that are individually selected and purchased by Viterbo librarians.

There is also a print reference collection located in the library.  The reference collection is on the first floor of the library by the video and DVD collection.  All reference books have a call number that starts with REF.  Reference books must remain within the library for use.
