New Display Cases

FHSU carpenters are installing 18 display cases along the west, south and east walls of the main floor Student Study Area during the daytime hours this week. The tables and chairs have been rearranged to accommodate the new cases, and soon there will be items from the Special Collections area on display. We thank you for your patience as we go through this process.


Let’s Talk Reference Books!

Not all books are alike.  Sometimes you have to check “between the covers.”  Reference books are “special” because there are so many different kinds of them.  Some are dictionaries while others might be encyclopedias, atlases, manuals, handbooks, directories, yearbooks, indexes, biographies, bibliographies, almanacs, or collections of quotations.  They can answer questions by providing facts, statistics, definitions, explanations, or background information.

Do you know what print Reference books are available at Forsyth Library for your particular area/areas of interest?  If not, you’re invited to browse our collection.  We have Reference books for about any topic you can imagine.  For example, here are titles of some of the new Reference books that have just arrived:
