Finding Library Books

Use the Location and Call Number together to find your book. The Location (usually on the left of the screen) will help you figure out what floor to start on. The Call Number (usually in the center of the screen) is how the books are organized on the shelf.

A&T STACKS books with call numbers starting A - L are on the 2nd floor.

A&T STACKS books with call numbers starting M - Z are on the 3rd floor.

A&T BLK STUDIES books are on the 3rd floor in the front.

A&T XXX (oversized books) are located on the 3rd floor next to Black Studies.

A&T LRC books are located on the 3rd floor next to Black Studies.

Some books "do not circulate" or cannot be checked out of the building.

A&T RESERVE books can be asked for at the first floor Circulation desk.

A&T READY REF books can be asked for at the first floor Reference desk.

A&T REF books are just past the Reference desk, on the first floor.


Resources for Music


LC Classification

Library of Congress Classification used hereWhen looking for books in the F. D. Bluford Library it is good to remember that we use the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System to organize and arrange research materials. The LC classification system is used by most research and academic libraries across the United States.  Call numbers in the LC Classification System use a mix of letters and numbers to arrange research materials by subjects.  Call numbers always start with one, two, or three letters.
