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. Once you find a book that matches your research needs, try browsing in that same section to find more relevant books. 

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

PN1993-1998 Motion pictures
TR287-500 Photographic processing (darkroom technique)
TR510-545 Color photography
TR550-581 Studio and laboratory
TR590-620 Lighting
TR624-835 Applied photography (artistic, commercial, medical, photocopying)
TR925-1050 Photomechanical processes
