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 LRC books are in the Learning Resources Center on the Lower Level.
Some books "do not circulate" or cannot be checked out of the building.
A&T RESERVE books can be gotten at the first floor Circulation desk.
A&T READY REF books can be gotten at the first floor Reference desk.
A&T REF books are just past the Reference desk, on the first floor.
Reference books are located on the first floor beyond the Reference Desk. If you need assistance, please ask one of the Reference Librarians.
Search the Catalog by Subject
One way to find materials is to search the library's Catalog, available at http://www.library.ncat.edu/. Searching the Catalog by keyword lets you search broadly. Searching by Subject is more focused, but you have to use specific terms called Subject Headings. Here are just a few possible Subject Headings for searching your specific topics.
