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 see Reading Call Numbers.

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.
