Works for literature can be found in the "P" section either at the Open Shelf, in the Reserve Book Collection (RBC) or through the library's subscribed online service.  Dictionaries,encyclopaedias, and other reference materials are located in the same space as the MERIC computer lab.  Reference materials can only be used inside the library and are not available for loan.  West Indian or Caribbean material not available on the Open shelves or RBC can be accessed at the West Indies & Special Collections (WI&SC).  Material obtained from the WI&SC are to be used in that Reading Room and are not to be removed.  A photocopier is available in the unit. Readers are advised to take especial care of material issued from that unit as it sometimes represents the library's sole copy.  Staffs are available to provide assistance.
