How to find what you're looking for at the Main Campus Library

Open Access Books = Books with Classification Systematics

These books are arranged according to the system of decimal classification (DC). DC indicates the book's exact location in the reading area.
If a DC appears in the catalog in addition to a book's signature, you can search for the book yourself.
Within the same DC, the books are sorted according to the inventory number.
(The textbook collection can also be found in the open access section on the ground floor of the Main Campus Library.)
