Need Help with Call Numbers?

Call Numbers are Your Friends

Libraries at Clemson use the Library of Congress classification system. Use the charts on this page to familiarize yourself with how Architecture materials are arranged within the library.

TIP #1: To browse all Clemson Libraries holdings in your subject area from home or anywhere you happen to be, click on the call number in any relevant item record and use the prev and next links near the top of the page to 'scan the shelves' virtually.

TIP #2: As you browse the shelves, keep in mind that some books may be checked out, on our Reserves shelf, in use by someone in the library, housed in remote storage (but still easily accessible), or located on our Oversize shelves upstairs from the main stacks. Some art and architecture materials are located in Cooper Library - check the catalog for item locations.
