Library of Congress Classification

Page Library uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system to organize books by specific subjects.  The LC system uses an alphanumeric system that looks like this: "A 253 .B52 1997". To find books related to your topic, first search Arthur, the Page Library catalog. By doing a Subject or Keyword search you will find a variety of titles that relate to your topic, but a Keyword search may not give you sources directly related to your chosen search terms. If you know the title of the source you are looking for, you could opt for the "Exact Title" search to save yourself some time. 

Many sources related to Environmental Science will be located downstairs (in the general collection) in these sections: "GE", "GF", "QH", and "TD" sections, though titles may be found in almost any section.  Also, many Environmental Science related titles will be government documents. These can be found both upstairs and on the main floor. These are organized using SuDoc which looks like this: " A 93.73/2:94"
