"Reference Books?"

With so many "reference" books online nowadays, (atlases, dictionaries, encyclopedias...) it may surprise people that we still have a print reference book collection, that we still buy books for it, and that they do get used! Yet they do get used: your blogger is typing this post with a book truck next to him with 10 or 15 print reference books that people have used and that are waiting to be put back on the shelves. Here's a few of the titles people found useful (all our reference books are in the catalog, are shelved on the main floor, and generally do not circulate.)
  • Davis' Drug Guide for Nurses
  • DVD Delirium: the International Guide to Weird and Wonderful Films
  • The Korean War, vol.2
