It contains specialized and general dictionaries, encyclopedias, guides, handbooks, bibliographies and other material that is usually used to consult to find specific information or to provide subject specific background information. It covers material in the humanities, including religion, philosophy, language, literature, art, and history, and the social sciences including psychology, sociology, political science, social work, economics, geography and education materials.The collection is shelved in the Library of Congress classification call number scheme, which is also used for the general collection.
