Call #: PN171.F56 G74 2007
Books with a call number that starts with JUV are juvenile books and are located after Z in the Library.
Periodicals are in a separate section but follow the same classification.
Here is an example of how books would be sorted on a shelf
Finding Books in the Library
Most books and periodicals are on the 2nd floor unless the catalog says otherwise.
A "stack" is a section of shelves. Click here for a list of the ranges of call numbers on each stack.
There are signs on the stacks that show the stack number and the range of call numbers on each side.
If you still are having trouble finding an item then ask someone at the Reference Desk. It is their job to help you.
