Use Library Search to search for books (and a variety of other formats, like articles, video, and audio). Books can provide lots of background information and in-depth coverage of a subject. Most of our books are published by university presses and are written by experts in their fields.
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.
