Each type of call number is shelved differently within the building. Until you become familiar with where items are housed within Bizzell, you can get help finding materials in any of the following ways:

  • Pick up a "call number locator" bookmark at either the circulation desk or the reference (information) desk. It lists call number ranges and on which floor these call numbers may be found.
  • Ask any library employee for assistance.
  • Look at the signs at each stairwell landing listing the call number ranges and services located on that floor.

Each branch library is laid out differently so you may want to take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the layout of the library during your first visit. Each library has employees that can help you find materials.
