Finding a Book on the Shelf

Most books and other library materials in Maag Library are assigned a Library of Congress Classification number (call number) and are arranged by those numbers on library shelves. Most call numbers begin with a one-, two-, or three-letter designation which represents a broad subject area.  For instructions on how to read a call number view the Finding Books in Maag Library Tutorial.

When you have found references in MaagNet for the material you want, note the call number, location and status, usually in a box below the bibliographic information.

Items in the General or Oversize Collections (see Locations Listed in MaagNet for descriptions) are found on floors 3 through 6A. The location charts in Reference and by the elevators use the letters at the beginning of the call number to show you which subjects and/or call numbers may be found on which floor.

 

*See the table Locations Listed in MaagNet for a description of common locations. See the  Availability/Status table for commonly used terms that describe whether or not an item is available for check-out.
