For the Resident Evil 2 remake location, see Records Room.

The Reference room (資料室 Zīliào shì?)[1] is an area of the Raccoon Police Station. This area is featured in Resident Evil 2 


There are rows of shelves with rows of books placed on each shelf. Some of the books and files are scattered around the floor of the room.


In order to reach this room, the player must pass through the 1F Southwest Corridor (where you encounter the first licker). However, this room will be locked and the player will need to use the Spade Key, which is located in the main hall after completing the statue puzzle. The Square Crank can be found during Scenario A for both Leon and Claire on the top of the shelf, but in Scenario B, Claire will find a lighter and a first aid spray.
