Floor Guide

After finding a call number in the WorldCat catalog for an item you want to locate in the library, make a note of the call number. It will start with one or two letter(s). Use those starting letters to identify the floor on which you'll find the item in the list below. Once you arrive on the correct floor, search the ends of the bookcases to locate the correct letter ranges. Finally, look at the spines of the books in the appropriate number range to find your call number. Be sure to look at the surrounding books on the same subject in case there is something nearby that will also (or better) meet your needs!

To help you navigate the library, see the maps of each floor.
