Welcome to the Reference Department of the Kelley Library. The staff of the
Reference Department is committed to fulfilling the research and information
needs of the Salem community in a professional, timely and friendly manner.
We manage the print reference collection of the Library, which consists of
standard print reference works, as well as local histories, town reports and
local and state government documents. We also manage the Library's extensive
suite of subscription electronic resources (link?), and we maintain a list of
useful websites categorized by subject area (see column at left or link here).
We conduct introductory computer Classess to help our patrons gain proficiency
in computer and internet use.
The Reference Department is also responsible for interlibrary loan. If we do
not own the material you are looking for, we can most likely request it from
another library for your use.
The Reference Department is staffed whenever the library is open and we are
always available to assist you in person or over the phone.
