Fire Science

The Lakeland Library has a number of titles in its collection to support the Fire Science @ LCC. The reference collection is usually an excellent starting point for research projects. Reference books are non-circulating items (they cannot be checked out) and are designed to be used to look for specific information rather than read cover to cover. Additionally, reference books contain bibliographic records that can lead to the discovery of further resources to support one's thesis. In some instances, the reference books are compiled or supported by primary source documents or case studies. In addition to reference materials, the library offers a circulating collection to support the fire science program. Materials related to Fire Science can be found in the collection by searching the subject Fire.
