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.

Call Number Locations

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