Finding Print Resources

General (Library of Congress) Call Numbers can be a helpful tool to utilize when searching for print resources within the library.  The library categorizes and groups books together by subject matter.  Therefore, locating the section and shelf that deals with your topic can be helpful to find other related materials.  The shelves in the library are labelled with the range of call numbers so that you can easily locate the specific range you are looking for.  If you are looking for a specific book, you can find the unique call number for the book using OneSearch on the Library's webpage.

General call numbers and subject areas are:

  • QH - Natural History and Genetics
  • QL - Zoology, including ornithology and individual species
  • QP - Physiology 
  • QR - Microbiology 
  • SD - Forestry
  • SH - Aquaculture & Fisheries 
  • SK - Hunting & Wildlife Management
