Milner Library owns a number of specialized handbooks on a variety of research topics and areas of study that summarize the research and provide concise narratives describing further research that is needed. Some of these handbooks can be checked out, and some are located in the reference collection and must be used in the library. These handbooks are especially useful for graduate students. Examples of such handbooks can be found at the following links:
