Book Location Guide for Main and Deering Libraries

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Books housed in the Main and Deering Libraries are organized first by NUcat location, then by call number.

MAIN Large Books (L000 - L999) are housed in the same rooms as corresponding regular-sized MAIN Library ranges, but shelved separately. Maps of tower rooms and the Lower Level are posted within those areas, with links to online versions included below.
