Humanities and Social Science Reference Collection Library Subject Collection uri icon

subject description and guidelines

  • For Olin Library and Uris Library, we collect reference materials (subject encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, periodical indexes, almanacs, catalogs, subject and national bibliographies, manuals, yearbooks, and biographical and statistical sources) in the humanities and social sciences.


  • Faculty and students of the College of Arts and Sciences are the primary constituency for this collection. Secondarily, the collection provides access to interdisciplinary reference sources used university wide that are not otherwise covered by other libraries or selectors.
