Library Organization: Sections

Each library is organized for the best use of its primary customers.

To make finding sources easier, librarians categorize materials using various characteristics, such as format (video, book, Web site), source type (reference, fiction), and subject (engineering, social work, sports). These collections may be arranged by room, floor, Web page, or building. Explore the sample library sections below (click rooms for more info).


Library Services

Reference librarians can help you find/use reference materials, search databases, develop research strategies, and almost anything related to information-seeking.

Circulation is responsible for checking library materials in and out, maintaining reserve readings for courses, and handling requests for checked out or missing material.

Interlibrary Loan borrows material for you from libraries around the region and the world. If you need an article or book your library doesn't own, ask for interlibrary loan help.
