In-depth and introductory material may be found in online and print books on a variety of topics. Books take much longer to write (and read) and are designed for long-form explanations of fields and larger issues. Use Library Search or the box below to find print and electronic books in Rowan's collection.
Books are organized in our libraries using the Library of Congress Classification System. The classification system uses call numbers to place items on a physical shelf, and items are also given multiple subject headings, a controlled language that describes the contents of items. Subject headings are used for searching in catalogs and databases, while call numbers are useful for finding materials and browsing physical shelves.
Subject headings are descriptions of the content of library materials using precise language. You can click on them in a relevant catalog record or search for them in advanced searches.
