On the right are call number ranges for dictionaries for languages commonly studied at Ohio University.
For most of these languages, look first in the Reference Collection in the Learning Commons (2nd floor of Alden). These dictionaries must be used in the Library. In many cases we will have other dictionaries on the 7th floor which you can check out.
Most dictionaries for Indonesian and Malay and other Southeast Asian languages are in the Center for International Collections on the 1st floor.

ALICE (and other library catalogs) use predefined words and phrases, called Subject Terms or Subject Headings, to describe the contents of non-fiction books. These are kind of like tags that are often used in social media. They are an attempt to impose a certain amount of order to the process of locating books on your topic.
