Reference Services


We expect that everyone will have questions about using the library. Visit with the Reference Librarian Garrett Trott or call (503) 375-7016 for help with research or using any of our resources. The Reference Desk is located just inside the entrance.

The reference collection is located in the north wing. It includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases and handbooks. These books are valuable sources for defining terms, obtaining overviews and statistics in many academic fields. Paper periodical indexes are also housed in this area.
