Welcome to the Ready Reference Guide

This guide is designed to help faculty and students answer ready reference questions independently. Independent reference is easier than ever thanks to the internet. Sometimes a quick Google search is all that is needed. However, sometimes a ready reference search is the first step of a deeper research investigation. In both cases, knowing where to find accurate, timely, unbiased information is of upmost importance.

The guide contains links and information to help answer common reference questions.

If the sources provided do not answer your reference question, please feel free to ask the assistance of a librarian. No question is too small!
