What are reference tools?

"Reference sources are authoritative works that help you locate information about people, facts, and ideas. These sources can help you find the date of an important event, major achievements of an individual or organization, or a definition of a term or concept. These books are often used to find specific facts, rather than written to be read cover-to-cover..."
Source: Research Like a Librarian

The Bothell Campus Library has reference materials online and in print.  Print reference sources can be found on the first floor of the library.
