Locating materials in the library

WorldCat Local is the library's online catalog.  Search it to identify the books, e-books, DVD's, CD's, and more in our library's collection. The library uses the Dewey Decimal System to assign a unique call number to every physical item in the building. Each item has a location as well, such as Reference, Reserve, etc.

When you have identified an item that you want to locate, note the entire call number as well as the location. If you search WorldCat Local on a mobile device, you will have the call number and location with you as you go into the stacks.

The library's collection spans all three floors of the building, with the Main (circulating) collection split among the three floors by call number:
000-199 First Floor
200-759.3 Second Floor
759.4-999 Third Floor

For assistance finding items in other locations, just ask at the library's InfoDesk.
