Books & More

This page describes different sections of the library and what kinds of print material will be located there. This will be helpful if looking at a call number and trying to locate a specific item in the library. Please note however that the library’s collection development preference is for items in electronic format, so it is recommended that you check out our growing collection of Ebooks.
