How do I find a book on the shelf?

In general: Circulating books are shelved upstairs, and reference books & serials are shelved downstairs.   Check our map or ask a librarian for help if the book is shelved anywhere else (Arundel Room, Oversize, etc). 

To find the book on the shelf, you will need the book's call number from the catalog entry.  To learn how to "read" call numbers, ask a librarian or check out our guide to reading call numbers here.

If you need more help, just ask a librarian.
