What is a Reference Book?
Reference books are available to use as much as you want in the library, but you can't take them home. They are usually books you just need to "refer" to for certain information, but don't read cover-to-cover. Look at the list to the right for the newest Welding Reference books!
Reference books are also called "non-circulating books". This means they cannot be checked out.

For this coming 2014 school year, 8 scholarships of $750 each will be awarded. These scholarships are non- renewable.
These scholarships are given in memory and in tribute to Paul H. Scholten, (1940 - 2002) a founding member of the Equipment & Engine Training Council, its Past President, and a fervent advocate for excellence in power equipment service and repair. Even before he helped to organize the EETC, Paul had been actively involved with technician certification and school accreditation and he was instrumental in the development of the four-cycle certification test. Paul Scholten spent his entire professional career with the Kohler Company Engine Division. He retired from Kohler in 2001 as Manager of Engine Service and Technical Publications and served as a consultant to the industry following his retirement. He was a leader and mentor to many of his colleagues; he was very active in his community and in his church. The EETC dedicates these scholarships to Paul in the hope that young people entering the power equipment industry will regard him as a role model for excellence in all of their life’s endeavors.
