The library has books on refrigeration and heating subjects. Here are just a few from the last couple of years that our library owns:
These are just some of our newer print books. Many new books are available through the library as eBooks.
The library's refrigeration and Heating books in two places.
Most are in the general collection on the second floor. You can check these out for four weeks.
Some refrigeration and heating books, such as books on standards, are in the reference room. The reference room is the small room next to the checkout desk on the first floor. You can't check out these reference books.
The library organizes books by by subject. Letters and numbers on a sticker on a book's spine say what the book is about. You don't need to know how the library assigns these letters and numbers. But you should know that each subject has its own area. Refrigeration and heating books are in the TH and TP sections.
