Q

I was looking for a book whose call number begins with P, but when I went to the stacks to get it, I couldn't find it.

Answer

Books whose call numbers start with P are all on D Level, unless they're in Reference. (If they *are* in Reference, the catalog will tell you.)

On D Level, there are two kinds of books that that start with P:

  • "Eisenhower D-Level Blue Labels" have labels that are colored blue and are located on shelves that are colored blue. The "blue label" books start on Shelf #D62 and continue all the way down to the carrels and up the other side until they end on Shelf #D-111.

  • All of the other books that start with P are on D Level on other shelves, including the compact shelving; those are the mechanical shelves back in the corner of the north side of the building.
