Library Books and Shelves

On the third and fourth floors, books in the library are shelved by Library of Congress call numbers. This means they are arranged by topic, rather than by author or title. 

The third floor contains books with the call numbers A - PQ. Topics of interest on this floor include business, psychology, travel guides, and graphic novels.

Finding a book in the library can be confusing. Don't hesitate to ask a librarian for help!

Studying off campus? Many library books are available as e-books, and most print materials can be shipped via Document Delivery.
