Locate a Book

Generally, most items in the EGSC Library are cataloged using the Library of Congress call number system. Most books will be located in the "Stacks" area behind the Reference desk. Books marked as "Reference" are non-circulating and will be located adjacent to the Library computer lab. Books marked as "Closed Reference" or "Reserve" are also non-circulating and are for in-library use only and may be checked out at the Circulation desk using your EGSC student ID card. Media items may also be asked for at the Circulation desk.

For help understanding the Library of Congress classification system and aid in reading Library of Congress call numbers, please see the following guides created by the EGSC Library:

Check out a Book

When visiting the EGSC Library in person, bring the items you would like to check out to the Library desk located in the center of the Library, near the entrance. A borrower must present his or her own EGSC student ID card or a government-issued photo ID to check out material.

An EGSC student ID or a government-issued photo ID are also required to use Reserve material, media items, or any other material that must be requested from Library staff.

For other questions, please see the EGSC Library's Circulation Policy.
