Locating Books in the Stacks

Books are shelved on the second and third floors of the library, and are organized by Library of Congress call numbers. These call numbers are associated with certain subjects, so related books will be shelved closer together.

Here are some useful call number ranges and their associated subjects:

HD Industries, land use, labor
GC Oceanography
GE Environmental sciences
GF Human ecology
QH540-549.5 Ecology
TD Environmental technology
TN Mining engineering
TP Chemical technology
