How to Find a Book on the Shelf
The library uses the Library of Congress classification system to organize our collections.
Each book has a "call number" that works like an address--you can use the call number to find the exact location of a book on the shelves. Every book has a unique call number. The letters and numbers represent subjects. This allows you to browse the shelves by topic.
Full-text publications from all academic areas of study, including the sciences, social sciences, humanities, education, computer science, engineering, language and linguistics, arts & literature, medical sciences, and ethnic studies.
For recommendations by subject, try one of the research guides...
