You may have occasion to look at dictionaries, encyclopedias, quotation books, subject handbooks, and other resources that libraries typically keep in a Reference Collection. The library subscribes to Literati by Credo Reference, a fast-growing database that includes over 600 reference books. Literati also generates topical searches that link into a number of the library's article databases.
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files, library databases, and other sources. RefWorks can help you format citations for a reference list; save article information (including database links), so that you can get back to articles quickly; and maintain a record of sources you have consulted.
There is a learning curve to mastering RefWorks, but many students and faculty find it an invaluable resource. A number of helpful video tutorials are available on YouTube.
