Want to browse?

Browsing, like in a book store, is sometimes the best way to find interesting books on your topic. You can do this in person at the UHV Library and the Victoria College Library. In libraries, we use call numbers to organize books by subject. Depending on your topic, the call numbers could greatly vary. For more information about the specific call numbers you are looking for, you can view the library catalog, check out the green call number posters in the library, or Ask a Librarian at the UHV library.

 

All books of a particular subject are going to organized together on the shelf. If you find a book you like, browsing the items next to it on the shelf can be a good method to find new information. 

 

Once you have a call number how are you supposed to use it? Write down the call number or call number range you'd like to explore. At the end of our bookshelves are markers that tell you what call number ranges for that shelf. They are organized alphabetically and then numerically. So for example, you would go to the Bs. Then the BCs then BC1 and so on until you found the specific call number or call number range. If you need help finding a call number, you can get help at the Ask a Librarian desk on the second floor.
