Call Numbers & Locations

Books and journals in the main collection are arranged by Library of Congress call numbers. (Government publications on the 3rd floor of Cooper Library use government call number systems.)

The library catalog gives locations and call numbers for materials. If the location is Cooper Library, use the first letter of the call number to determine the floor where the item is shelved (see the chart below). For more information about call numbers, see Understanding Library of Congress Call Numbers and How to Use Library of Congress Call Numbers.
