Tips for Browsing

The Hekman Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System. Each subject area has a combination of letters followed by numbers, then more letters, and possibly a publication date. This is referred to as the "call number." Here is the way the call numbers are structured in Geography, Geology, and Environmental Science.

Browse in these call number areas (3rd floor) to find resources on Geography:

Call Number Subject
G General, including atlases, globes, and maps
GA Cartography

Physical geography, including Geomorphology, Hydrology and Natural Disasters

GF Human ecology

Browse in these call number areas to find Geology and Environmental Science resources:

Call Number Subject
QE (5th floor) Geology
GE (3rd floor) Environmental Science/Studies
