Print books are located in the "QA" section on the third floor of Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library. In the box below is a high level view of the classification system. Check out selected books (online or in print). These may be located in the Reference section (first floor to the left of circulation), or available electronically. Reference books use the same Call Numbers as the circulating books listed above and must be used within the Library.
