Call number ranges for browsing

Browsing can be a great way to encounter books you'd otherwise miss, or to open yourself up to new discoveries and inspiration. Use the following call numbers ranges to browse in the library stacks. Similar books are very often collocated on the shelves, but it's a good to keep an open mind as you browse as some books may be classified differently than you'd think.

Refer to the General Information: Books page for help reading call numbers.

Relevant subject headings

Unlike call number browsing, subject headings are more commonly used when you know what you want to find using the library catalog.
