Locating Books in the Library

Use the call number given for a book to to find the book in the library.
Sometimes a specific place is given in the Location information (e.g., Reference, Reserve Room, or Special Collections). A location other than "Morris Library" means that you should go to that location to locate the item. Use the call number as an address to find the book on the shelves. The first letter of the call number determines the correct floor. If the book's location is listed as "Internet," clicking on the link in the DELCAT Discovery record will take you to the book.
