Finding Books in the Stacks

Locating the book in the library:

  • Check the Status of the item to see if the book is available for check-out.

  • Write down the Call Number, which tells you the location of your book in the library, and then head for the shelves!


  • Go to the stacks and find the shelf where it is located. 
  • Use the shelf-end signage to find the correct shelf.
  • Look at the spine labels on the books to find a matching call number.
