Call Number Guide

Temporary Stacks Closure

As of April 21, the lower level bookstacks are closed to users temporarily for construction. Use the Can't Find It? link on the item's catalog page and library staff will page material and place it on hold for you the same weekday, or the next weekday morning. Contact circulation with any other questions.

A small reference and unbound journal collection remains on the first floor.

Books with Dewey Decimal System call numbers are shelved on the lower level after the Library of Congress call numbers (Q-TZ) and non-Library of Congress Ms and Ts. Many books in the Dewey Collection have an L preceding the call number indicating the item is a larger than standard size, but most of these are shelved with the regular sized material.
