Are you not sure where to start your research? 

Remember there are always Reference Librarians available to assist you with any part of your own research process, either in person or via our Ask a Librarian service. 

You can find librarians on the Second Floor of the Doyle Library or on the First Floor of the Mahoney Library in Petaluma, anytime the library is open.

Even Better than Wikipedia, and More Reliable Too!


These reference books, located on the first floor of the Mahoney Library and the second floor of the Doyle Library provide you with a great starting place for learning more about anything to do with fire science whether it be wildfires, hazardous materials, statistics or facts.  Unlike Wikipedia, these articles are written by experts you can cite in your papers and are solid, credible sources to inform your research.

For your paper, you'll still need to research further in books and journal articles.
