Library materials are organized into several different COLLECTIONS. When you search the online library catalog, you will see which collection each of your results is in. To find your item in the Library, you will need to know both its collection name (or location) and its call number. Read over the Library Catalog Search Tips for information on how to search the catalog and find the call number and location for materials. Books and audiovisuals are typically organized using the Library of Congress Classification System.

Note: If using the Power Search option in the Library Catalog, you can select a particular collection from the Location drop-down menu.
