Reference Books in your library can give you authoritative dependable information quickly. Your local library keeps on hand medical and pharmaceutical handbooks, consumer buying guides, subject-specific encyclopedias, atlases and many more information-at-your-fingertips materials. Reference books cannot be checked out of the library, so they are always there for you to use. Ask your librarian for help; that is what librarians like to do most.
