I'm a believer in browsing the shelves. There are many reference books both in the reference area on the 3rd floor and down in the stacks on the 1st floor (Library West). They are all arranged by call letters "CC", find "CC76..." and you will hit paydirt.
Here are a couple of reference sources for some basic knowledge. Hey, we can all use a refresher course every now and again. Both are on the 3rd floor in the reference collection.
