Answer

Finding a Print Book in the library

Books are arranged by call number

Call number locations are arranged by levels (see chart below)

On the chart the Level letters indicate: C = Central, "N" = North, and "S" = South

There are floor maps for each level near the stairwell landings to help you locate the call number

Problems? Ask the Help Desk on the level.

NOTE: Journals & magazines (Periodicals) with the same call number are located in the Periodicals Room, Level 2 – N.
