Browsing the Library Collection
The Library’s book collections are organized according to the Library of Congress Classification System. Each book has a unique call number. These numbers are found in the online catalog below the title in the Search Results List and in the Labeled Display screen for a specific title, and they appear as call numbers on the spine label of each book or media album.
The largest book collection in the Library is the Circulating Collection. This collection starts in the tall stacks where the books in the A through H call numbers are located. Books in the J through Z call numbers are shelved on the low stacks, starting in the back of the Library with the J's, and ending with the Z's by the Reference Desk.
Other collections are: New Books, Reference Collection, Display Books,
Oversized Books, Media, Current Periodicals, Bound Periodicals, Newspapers, and Reserve Collection.
For more information, see the Browsing the Library Collection page.

The Library subscribes to two e-book collections from Books24x7: the IT Pro Collection which offers thousands of books with broad and deep coverage of over 100 technology topics, and the Well Being Essentials Collection provides hundreds of easy-to-read texts on health and wellness issues.
