Off Campus Access
Off-campus access to online databases and e-books is available to current Montgomery College students, faculty, & staff. You will be asked to log in with your M number.
Why Choose a Reference Book?
Reference books such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, almanacs, atlases, etc. give concise introductions to topics or terms. Use them to:
- explore topics for research;
- get background information;
- explain unfamiliar ideas.
They are available through the MC Libraries in both print and electronic formats.
These are large, multidisciplinary collections offering a mix of dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases, chonologies and other reference materials. Some titles are general in nature and others are subject specific. You can search or browse all of these collections. In addition, titles can be found through our online catalog, MC Library Catalog.
These databases are useful in the discovery of both reference type resources and resources in general.
