When would I use the reference Department?
The reference staff is available to help you locate information in print sources, through magazine databases and on the Internet. The librarians can help you locate books that are in the Old Colony Library Network and assist you in borrowing items from outside the network through interlibrary loan. If you are having any difficulty using library services or finding information, please come to the reference desk for assistance. Reference help is also available over the phone at 781.878.1236 extension 16 or by email.
