              If you are unfamiliar with your subject area, start by searching in the Reference section of the library.  Check out the tab for Reference Sources in this resource guide. 

              In Reference you may find a source that contains the important persons and dates or summarizes the main events of the period you are researching. The Reference section includes general encyclopedias and special subject encyclopedias, general histories and chronologies. 


              Get a Library Card

              Every student needs a library card to borrow materials from the library and to request materials through ILLiad, the Library's inter-library loan service.

              • To obtain a library card in person, go to the library's circulation desk at either the Auburn or Fulton campus. You will need a photo ID and proof that you are currently enrolled as a student. Your library card will be issued while you wait. 
              • If you are an online-only student and you do not visit either campus, click on this link to apply for a library card. Your library card will arrive in the mail in a few days.
