One way to navigate the library and its print materials is by using the Library of Congress Call numbers. Every book in the library has a specific call number, which is like the address as to where the book is located in the library.
Additionally, every call number is associated with a specific subject, for example, here are some call numbers that relate to German/Germanic studies:
DB: Austria, Lichtenstein, Hungary, Czech Republic, etc. (4th floor)
DD: Germany (4th floor)
DQ: Switzerland (4th floor)
PT: Germanic Literature (lower level)
PD-PF: Germanic languages (lower level)
Use this search box to locate books available at the library either in print or online.
