Finding Books in the Library

To the right you will see the floor plan of Level 1 which is downstairs and where the majority of the books are shelved.  The books are arranged by call number starting with A and the snaking their way around the floor.  Each stack end is labeled with the first and last call number so all you have to do is figure out if your call number falls between them!  Once you get the idea you won't need a floor plan to find your books.
