Reference Works Collection
Providing basic research and information needs to BA patrons, the Reference Works Library serves as a starting point for more specialized research.
In both print and electronic formats, the collection includes general and specialized up-to-date encyclopedias, dictionaries, directories, atlases, biographies and more, primarily in Arabic, English and French. Foreign language references, such as bilingual and multilingual dictionaries and encyclopedias, are also available.
Most of print references are housed in B4 at the Main Library, while some are located within the specialized libraries collections. Moreover, the Reference Works Library also provides access to a number of electronic resources available to BA users, such as EBSCOhost, Encyclopedia Britannica Online and many others.
