Welcome to the Reference Department @ FSPL!

If you are looking for information, you've come to the right place!

The Reference Department offers resources for business, school and personal research. We have a wide range of reference materials available in several formats -- print as well as digital. We are happy to assist library customers in person and we can also answer questions over the telephone. Just call us at 479-783-0229, ext. 1171. You can also contact us electronically via our Online Reference Assistance program.


Computers and Electronic Resources

The Reference Department at the Main Library provides several computers for public use. Among the resources available to the public are twelve computers with Internet access for use by adults at the Main Library plus several more Internet PCs at our branch locations. We also have public access computers for children and teens in two separate areas in the Youth Services department. We limit use of the Internet computers to our FSPL patrons (with library cards) or charge a fee of $3.00 per session, allowing one session per day per person. Library patrons who wish to use these public computers must follow the guidelines of our Internet Access Policy and must sign up for their session at the Reference Desk.

We also have three word processing PCs plus one multimedia computer and scanner in the Reference Department at the Main Library. There are several computers around the building with access ONLY to our FSPL catalog and our online databases. These do not require sign-up or fee but access is limited to FSPL internet locations.

Please note: Our Library staff is NOT trained to teach you how to use these resources but will try to be helpful, time permitting.
