Organization of Library Materials
The library’s materials are organized by the Library of Congress Classification System (LCC). In order to locate an item in the library, you must know its CALL NUMBER and LOCATION in the library. These documents will assist you in understanding LCC and locating the items you need.
Scholarly vs Popular Sources
For your research, some professors require the use of scholarly sources from academic scholarly journals, while others are more flexible and allow the use of popular media and sources. These documents will assist you in identifying different source types.
Depending on your professor or field of study, a specific citation style may be required when citing your sources. These are guides created by the library on the most commonly used citation styles.
