Gerontology Books and Reference Resources

Use OneSearch to find books and reference resources in the ARC Library, online, and at other Los Rios Libraries. Most of ARC's gerontology books can be found on the second floor of the library under call numbers HQ 1060 – 1064. Online resources can be accessed using your eServices login (w# and password). You can request books from other Los Rios Libraries to be sent to you at the ARC library by submitting an interlibrary loan request.

Gerontology Book Reccomendations

Books provide in-depth information about a topic. They may be single monographs by an individual author or a collection of essays/articles by multiple authors. Do not feel like you need to read an entire book unless it is required for your class. Physical gerontology books are located on the 2nd floor of the ARC Library and generally have call numbers between HQ 1060 – 1064. They can be checked out at the user services desk at the front of the library. Online resources can be accessed with your student services login (W# + password). 

Gerontology Reference Resources

Reference books, which include encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, and other collections of data, are a great source for general information about a topic. Physical items are located behind the Research Help Desk on the first floor of the library. They can only be used in the library and may not be checked out. Online resources can be accessed from any computer using your student services login (W# + password).
