Religion: Print Reference

Browsing the Reference Stacks

Browsing works very well in the Reference Stacks since they are relatively compact.  Books in Reference (like books throughout the library) are shelved according to the Library of Congress Classification Scheme. Click on the links below to see details on the call numbers from BL to BX (Religion).

Using the Catalog

You can easily filter out just the Reference Collection by using the Connelly Library Catalog.  Run a search on a keyword or subject and use the drop down arrow keys to sort by Reference Resources
