How to Find Books

By Browsing the Library's Shelves....

A call number is an item's location on the shelf. The Langsdale Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to arrange its collections. Materials related to criminology and criminal justice can be found under call numbers that begin with HV

HV6001-7220.5 - Criminology 

HV7231-9920.5 - Criminal Justice

The HV call number section also contains related subjects such as alcoholism, drug habits and abuse, and social services. 

By Searching the Library's Catalog....

If you're looking for a specific title, author, or materials on a subject, you can use the library's catalog to find a print or digital copy of an item or to see if the item is available elsewhere. 

While WorldCat is useful for finding books and DVDs, a library database is your best bet for finding a journal article. 

By Borrowing from Other Libraries....

If Langsdale (or the Law Library) doesn't have a book or journal article you need, you can request a copy of it through our interlibrary loan (ILL) service. Journal articles are usually delivered within a day or two whereas books can take up to two weeks to be delivered. Plan ahead if you're requesting materials through ILL for class.
