Browsing the stacks in Morris Library can be extremely helpful when you are looking for additional sources for your research. Most books related to Asian history can be found on the 3rd floor of Morris Library and fall under the following Library of Congress classifications:
C, D History - General
DS History of Asia
DS520 - DS560.72 History of Southeast Asia
DS701 - DS799.9 History of China
DS801 - DS897 History of Japan
DS901 - DS937 History of Korea
JQ1499 - JQ1749 Asian Politics
KN - KPW489 Asian Law
PL1 - PL4890 Asian Literature
This is just a sampling of the subjects that you might encounter. Because Asian Studies is so interdisciplinary, you may need to do a specific subject search in DELCAT, the library's catalog, to find the call number for the book that you need.
You can also "browse" the shelves virtually by searching by Call Number through DELCAT.
