We have many reference books in the library, including a Foundation Cooperating Collection to help grant seekers find grants, a Law Library for legal research, and a Virginia Room for genealogists and local history buffs.

Databases offer peer-reviewed, reliable information if you prefer to research online. We also can help you with citations for research papers.

We can teach you how to judge whether the information on a website is reliable or biased.
