Reference Collection

The Harvey Library print Reference Collection is located on the 1st floor. It is a comprehensive collection containing over 12,000 volumes, providing reference resources for all disciplines taught at Hampton University.

The current plan for this collection is to include as many online reference resources as feasible, in order to enhance remote access to the collection. Online reference resources are available through the Harvey Library Reference Resources web page, the Online Catalog, Research Guides, and SUMMON.

Reference books do not circulate and must be used on the 1st floor of the library.
