Books are arranged on the shelves in the library by subject. We use the Library of Congress Classification System to assign call numbers to our materials so that materials on similar topics are next to each other on the shelves and patrons and staff can easily find what they need. You need to know a book's call number in order to get it off the shelf in the library.

If you'd like to browse our shelves, use these call number ranges to find books on the subject of sociology:

HM 1 - 128 Sociology (General)
