Books and journals are arranged on our shelves according to the Library of Congress (LC) classification system. Using this system, each book or journal is assigned an alphanumeric call number based on its subject focus. This call number uniquely identifies the item and places it on our shelves near other material on the same subject.
Use the major classification headings in the next section as a basic guide to browse shelves on the 3rd floor in the Thomas G. Carpenter Library.
To find specific subjects, search OneSeach using Keywords as your search type. Then, identify the call numbers for relevant books from your search and browse for other books near these call numbers.
If you have difficulty locating items on the shelves or have other questions, please ask at the Research Desk.
