Research Resources

Reference librarians are available during all library hours to help you find library materials and information. You can also reach us by phone at (717) 394-2651 ext. 128 or send us a message below.

If you have a question when the library is closed, we still have answers.

Give Ask Here PA, Pennsylvania’s 24/7 Virtual Reference Service, a try.

If you have a valid Lancaster County Library card, another choice is to search the online resources of the Library System of Lancaster County.

Or, try Credo. Credo is an easy-to-use tool for starting research. Gather background information on your topic from hundreds of full-text encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri, quotations and subject-specific titles, as well as 500,000+ images and audio files and over 1,000 videos.
