Browse the Stacks

The library uses the Library of Congress Classification system. Because books are organized by subject, you can browse the stacks, and find books on the same topic shelved together.

At McQuade, call numbers A-H are located on the 2nd floor. Call numbers J-Z  are located on the lower level. 
**U.S. History books can be found in the stacks on the 2nd Floor**
