Finding Books on English Topics in the Library

The library has more than one million books in its collections (including print and e-books), some of which are located in the Main Stacks (on Levels 2 and 3), with others in Basement Storage. On Level 1 in the Information Commons, you will find Reference books for use in the library

Literature and journalism books are primarily on Level 3 in call numbers that begin with PN (Journalism), PR (British literature) and PS (American literature). Books on rhetoric fall under a variety of subjects and, therefore, are on both Levels 2 and 3.
